In February, 1994, a 34-year-old cancer patient named Gloria Ramirez was rushed into the Riverside General emergency room having difficulty breathing. Soon after, more than a dozen nurses, doctors and patients began passing out from toxic fumes that allegedly came from the woman’s body. But what really caused this bizarre incident?
