A WOMAN was taken by ambulance for hospital treatment after a carbon monoxide alarm alerted her to a faulty gas central heating boiler last night (Wednesday).

Isle of Wight Fire and Rescue Service was called to a detached house in St John’s Road, Wroxall, shortly after 7pm.

An ambulance took the woman to St Mary’s Hospital and a gas engineer was called to inspect the boiler.

The Isle of Wight Fire and Rescue Service said the incident showed the value of having a carbon monoxide alarm.

The woman was discharged this morning (Thursday).

I had carbon monoxide poisoning at 18 weeks pregnant. Thankfully he was just small and they said premature. I have a monitor. Definitely worth the £15 I paid. You can get one you stick on the boiler that changes colour for mega cheap but make sure you check it regularly. Glad she is ok. We had oxygen therapy for 3 hours along with my then under 2 year old!
