Having been the person elected to drive the unfortunate victim of a coolant release event to the hospital, I can definitely say that it sure didn't look like fun. He was working on an exhaust manifold, his wrench slipped and cracked an AC line. He caught most of the refrigerant load (with oil) right in the face.marclar said:u only have a 40% chance of contracting a fatal desease from direct exposure to refrigerant.
Unfortunately for Ramone, He got a face full of refrigerant that resulted in nearly instant frostbite, and a lung full of atomized ester oil.the oil was apparently the big issue.madmatt2024 said:What exactly did the doctor say was wrong with that guy? The only things I can think of is the refrigerant can freeze things if released in liquid form. It also can displace the air in your lungs and you could suffocate. If you stay away from it you should be good.
