Tom Lyden of the FOX 9 Investigators

Blown Away

This story uncovers the danger behind a common household product. Using data provided by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner, the FOX 9 Investigators discovered a rash of fatal overdoses connected to "huffing" compressed air. As a drug of choice it is cheap, and as we discovered, perfectly legal, despite laws designed to outlaw the abuse of inhalants. Originally broadcast February 5, 2018 on FOX 9, KMSP-TV, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota.
