According to the San Jose fire fighting teams, the woman, who committed suicide on the 19th floor, may have used the hazardous material.

As part of the decontamination procedure, the HAZMAT teams of San Jose and Santa Clara County fire dept. have also sprayed the hotel staff with water, in case they may have been exposed to the gas in the aftermath of the suicide.

Although the HAZMAT teams couldn’t have identified the hazardous gas, the investigation about the same is carried out with the assumption that it could be a sulfur compound, based on the guests’ complaint.
