Incident report Herkimer gassing 2/27/18 between 12:30 and 13:00

gas attack Herkimer

 

 

Herkimer gassing of 2/27/18 – I was in my backyard and then entered my home experiencing itchiness, burning skin sensations and nausea. I went out the front door (position 1) and observed a small black sedan backing out of a driveway near 324 Pleasant Ave (position 2). This vehicle headed west towards PK’s pub. It parked on the north side roughly at position labelled 3 on the above map. A person exited the vehicle and ran briskly towards the home located near #3. At the same time there was a small black sedan parked near #4 on the above map. The license number of one of these vehicles (obtained 2 minutes later after one vehicle had departed) was FSE-9699.

I was suspicious of the vehicle backing out from the driveway labeled 2 because it drove such a short distance. Why not walk a distance of several houses rather than drive? And if the purpose was to park close to PK’s pub, why not turn around in one of the several vacant driveways that were closer to the pub?

The prevailing wind at this time was from the west. I believe that poison pesticide sprayed from position #2 resulted in the symptoms that I experienced. These symptoms are consistent with Deltmethrin, a popular pyrethroid insecticide manufactured in Canada.
