Quote:"More than a dozen people, including four children, are being watched for symptoms of mercury poisoning after they were exposed in the north-central Iowa town of Armstrong."

"a construction worker remodeling a house found a plastic bottle with about 40 pounds of liquid mercury on Friday.

[He] "took the mercury to a bar to show friends. Someone dropped the bottle and exposed 10-12 people."

[Then] "the worker took the remaining mercury to the house and hid the bottle in a sandbox where four children later found it."

Quote:Mercury has a density of 13.55 grams per cu cm, so 1 liter (1,000 cu cm) weighs 13,550 grams or 13.55 kg.
