A man was sent to the hospital Wednesday after suffering chemical burns to much of his body.
It happened around 5:15 pm at a company called U.D.M.S, located in an industrial park off Western Avenue. Investigators say the company recycles and destroys x-ray film.
K.F.D. says he has 2nd and 3rd degree chemical burn from a chemical called sodium hydroxide, also known as lye.
Firefighters are not sure yet how the burn happened.
