Officials determined a liquid nitrogen leak had occurred. They have assured the leak is contained and not an airborne threat to the public. Authorities say five people died at the plant, and a sixth victim lost their life while receiving treatment at a local hospital. At least nine others are hurt, three of them being in critical condition.
