90th Birthday Limo Bus Party Ends In Vomit Debacle

Posted on March 4, 2016

When a limo bus arrived in Mars, Penn., to transport two dozen friends and family members celebrating Helen Sarver's 90th birthday to a steakhouse, the group discovered one of the bus’s two air-conditioning units wasn’t working as temperatures hovered near 90 degrees in August 2014.

Passengers became flushed, overheated and nauseated. Two people allegedly vomited.

    What a way to spend a special day in a party bus :( Every monday your maint. Guy should start the vehicle while they clean the interior with the ac on to make sure its working. I use a metal thermometer placed in the vents, i check the front and rear ac and we service the fluid every 12 months. Our vehicles a/c run very cold even in 100 degree weather. I would like to know the age of the vehicle in the article
