Four workers were killed after a chemical leak at a DuPont plant around 4 a.m. in La Porte, Texas Saturday. A fifth employee was hospitalized after being exposed to the chemical. “The leaked chemical, methyl mercaptan, is used in insecticides and fungicides, as well as to odorize natural gas for safety purposes,” CNN reports. Plant manager Randall Clements said in a statement: “There are no words to fully express the loss we feel or the concern and sympathy we extend to the families of the employees and their co-workers. We are in close touch with them and providing them every measure of support and assistance at this time,” CNN details. “Neighbors reported smelling the chemical’s odor, but the company said it diffused in the air and did not pose a risk,” CNN further reports. “Emergency responders monitored the air and concluded that a shelter-in-place order was not necessary.” The cause of the leak is still under investigation at this time.
