Authorities on Long Island suspect a man who collapsed overnight while working at a jewelry business may have been exposed to cyanide.
Hazardous material crews were investigating Tuesday. McManus said that, as a precaution, a "very limited'' evacuation was ordered around the Manorhaven business. Some local roads were closed.
The 51-year-old man was taken to St. Francis Hospital at about 3:40 a.m. Tuesday. Fire officials were contacted by the hospital and told the man may have been exposed to cyanide while working at a Manorhaven jewelry manufacturer and repair shop.
His condition was not immediately known.
