      The contamination on the individual was located on the clothing, hair,
      arms and hands. The individual underwent onsite decontamination and was
      sent to a local hospital as a precautionary measure. As of today
      (10/23/06) there is still some residual contamination on the
      individual's finger tips; however, further scrubbing to remove this
      contamination may cause breakdown to the skin in that area. The
      individual is currently wearing gloves in an attempt to sweat out the
      residual cesium contamination.
