Recent episode of ER (based I think on Nov incident in New York involving a sanitation worker killed when a drum of HF ruptured and he inhaled the vapor as well as being exposed to liquid. In episode they mentioned that HF combined with calcium in blood? (bones) resulting in heart failure. Missed the explanation on the show (if one was given). Would appreciate it if could help. Thanks
