The victim used eight cans of foam but failed to make sure the room was properly ventilated.
Always read safety warnings on the side of aerosol cans and observe the safety advice closely. Areas where expanding foam is drying out should always be very well ventilated.

"I'm troubled by the fact that there are cases which can't be prosecuted at all."
