Several Hurt in Paper Mill

I wanted to copy this article from the Associated Press published yesterday but read that they do not allow copy and pasting of their articles, so I’ll summarize here.  

In Anxiang county of Hunan Province, a worker was cleaning the pool (with chemicals) where all the pulp paper went when he fell in, because he could not handle the noxious gas.  His coworkers then rushed to fish him out, but they, too, were unable to handle this gas.  Seven died and two were injured.  The government has not released what type of toxic gas was involved.

The article also mentioned the Tianjin and Zibo explosions (Tianjin being one of the worst in recent years) and some updated/different info., such as 147 were killed in the Tianjin incident.

In a separate incident, 15 tons of sulfuric acid spilled in Zhezhang from a crashed tanker truck.

I began writing Elle's Adventure in China (EACh) in June 2014 as a fun summer project, but as obstacles kept interfering with my plans, I forked and forked more options. I took writing this novel much more seriously in mid-July, and want to have it officially published someday in my lifetime. As many artists put their hearts into their projects, so do I. I did not start out liking to read, but a professor suggested a book for me for homework a few years ago, and it was an amazing book. Since then, I read for pleasure, and I hope my novel, Elle's Adventure in China, does the same for as many of you as possible. The same thing goes to writing. I did not like to write until I took a course where the professor and papers made me love to write. I hope every one of you find what makes you happy and dedicated to work. In May 2015, I started my other blog, Read and Write Here (R&WH), as a place to post other things that aren't China- and Chinese culture-related and not EACh. I share some of my memories and experiences from student teaching, irregular participation in Daily Prompts, etc. I'd like to have regular people and bloggers to write book reviews and post it on R&WH someday. Keep reading and writing!
