You Need A Written Warning?

A Michigan court has reinstated a lawsuit against a manufacturer of a muffler repair kit that didn't warn in the instructions not to run the vehicle in a closed garage. The suit arises from carbon monoxide asphyxiation when the decedent ran the engine on his vehicle to cure the patch on the muffler but failed to open the garage door. Believe it or not the Court found that reasonable minds could differ on the obviousness of the danger from running a car indoors and, therefore, determined that the products liability suit against the manufacturer could proceed to trial.

Anybody here not know that running a fuel engine in a closed space is dangerous?
