    A Michigan hospital has isolated a patient who reportedly ingested rodent poison and is now emitting potentially toxic gas, the Detroit Free Press reported.

    The Washtenaw County hazardous material team arrived Monday morning at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Ann Arbor, Mich., and took control of the situation by isolating the patient—who’s identity has not been revealed—in a private room of the intensive care unit.

    “The hospital is open, and the situation is isolated,” said hospital spokeswoman Lauren Jones. She said she could not release specifics of the case due to patient privacy laws.

    Traffic through that section of the hospital has been restricted to staff caring for the patient and the hazardous material team.

    Public affairs manager of Huron Valley Ambulance, Joyce Williams, told the Detroit newspaper that the patient had already been admitted to the hospital for more than a day before the hazmat team was called because of suspicious emissions.

    “They were doing air purity testing,” Williams said.

    The hospital issued an e-mail statement dismissing rumors that the man’s flatulence was flammable.

    According to the AGW alarmists, all we have to do is breathe.
