COLBERT, Okla. -- After days of tests and analysis, a home in Colbert tainted by mercury is unlivable.
Bryan County Emergency Management says mercury levels inside that home are 22 times higher than safe levels. It is now up to the owner's family to decide what to do with the home.
One man died, and a woman was hospitalized after being coming into contact with the element.
Authorities say they were using mercury to extract gold from old computer parts.
