Pennsylvania Cemetery Maintenance Crew Uncovers Inhalant Abuse


The superintendent of grounds maintenance at Schuylkill Haven Union Cemetery in Pennsylvania has discovered signs that people are abusing computer dusting spray.  Workers at the cemetery have said they have found 15 to 20 dusting spray cans on the property; most under one of the five benches within the 13-acre cemetery that was established in 1853.  One worker commented, "We're hoping that we don't find a body up here from someone doing that." 

Administration from the cemetery and local police are working together to understand more about a growing inhalant abuse trend in the community. 

The Schuylkill County Coroner Dr. David Moylan said there has been one inhalation case within the last two years in the county. A 15-year-old girl in Schuylkill Haven died because she inhaled dangerous substances.
