SAN MATEO, Calif. (KGO) — Through a lawsuit that’s been filed against Atria Park, ABC7 has learned about the second death of a resident poisoned at the senior living facility in San Mateo.

Last month, at least three of the residents were given dishwashing liquid instead of juice. Ninety-three-year-old Trudy Maxwell died within days.

The lawsuit filed against Atria Park says Schroeder liked cranberry juice and thought he was drinking it. However, it ended up being a highly toxic cleaner and disinfectant he drank.

The incident is under investigation, but facility officials say it was a mistake.
