On May 10, 2002, an oxygen-acetylene cutting rig was stored overnight in an unventilated SeaLand shipping container. All the valves on the cylinders and the torch were left open overnight, and the gases filled the container with an explosive gas mixture. A nonintrinsically safe incandescent light and switch were installed within the container. The gas mixture exploded when the light was turned on the following morning, resulting in the death of two employees and the hospitalization of a third.
