Six injured in leaking at the LG Display plant in South Korea, a fire officer says

Six workers were injured Wednesday as a result of a chemical leak at LG Display Co’s factory in South Korea, an official at a local fire station said.

LG Display, which provides mobile displays a Apple Inc., said it was investigating the cause of the accident at its plant in the city of Paju, which borders North Korea, 55km (34 miles) north of Seoul. The company said its production was unaffected.

“The spilled chemical is suspected to be tetramethylammonium hydroxide, which is highly toxic,” said an official from the Paju Fire Station, saying six people were injured and taken to hospital. LG Display closed up 2.3%, compared to a 0.7% increase in the broader market, before the incident was reported.
