If the April 1 death of a Tacoma woman was due to hemlock poisoning, it would be the first such fatality in 11 years in the state, the Washington Poison Center said.

Sakha Keo, 55, apparently put hemlock in a salad she ate, thinking it was something else, said Annie Waisanen, a Pierce County medical investigator.

That is very sad. Plant identification books are a great investment. Our area has alot of mushrooms and every year tourists that forage on hikes have to be airlifted out of here to the city. I am very careful what we pick, I always take the ID book with us.
