On November 24, Friday, a couple from Western New York were gambling at the Seneca Niagara Casino when they suddenly passed out while they were playing at the slot machines, and the next thing they knew was that the man was robbed of his cash and casino winnings while he was unconscious.
According to police, the Barker couple and another woman went to the casino to gamble on the morning of Friday. The 65-year-old man had $200 cash and he won a pair of $30 redemption tickets while in the casino, which he placed everything in his pocket.
When he and his wife were at a slot machine, they both fell unconscious. They were taken to the Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center via ambulance, where they regained consciousness later.
The man reported to the police that his cash and redemption tickets were gone when he woke up and checked his pockets. They have no idea how and why he and his wife lost consciousness, which happened between 9am and 10am that day.
Is it possible that someone may have sprayed some form of chemical in there that rendered them unconscious, so that they can be robbed?
What do you think may have happened to them?
