The illness was attributed to due to potentially fatal gas vapours flowing through the ship. Niagara Region's public health department said the men, believed to be Chinese sailors, were assessed and treated at Niagara Health System sites and West Lincoln Memorial Hospital. Fourteen were taken to NHS sites, while two were taken to the Grimsby hospital between 2 a.m. and 3:15 a.m. Wednesday.
