yes... tried to google it but can't find it, but here's another similar story that happened here which i also read in the papers years ago:

The night after the testimonial dinner, I was again intrigued and shocked by a news shown in the news regarding the death of a 4th year Veterinary Medicine student from University of the Philippinesnamed "Mark." He died because of formalin...

Before I continue telling that story, let me give you my information bits about that irritating chemical...

Formaldehyde or methanal, which is the original chemical name of formalin, is an organic chemical substance used mainly in preserving organs and tissues. It is the simplest aldehyde. Literally, an organ removed from the body decomposes within hours or minutes, but immerse that in formalin will prolong its life, calling this procedure as FIXATION which we employed in the laboratory in histopathology (although some structures can be distorted microscopically). As I have said a while ago, this substance’s fumes are really irritating to the eyes even if you wear laboratory goggles. Formalin is also used as a biocide and a disinfectant. An incident a decade or more ago regarding formalin was also flashed on the news, revealing many people poisoned after they ate vegetables treated with formalin. After that incident, formalin was no longer used as a biocide for vegetation.

And now, let's go back to our story. He was conducting an activity about formalin concentration. He brought a sample of formalin in his house. After the tiresome studies he had, he goes down and brought 2 glasses and a bottle of water. One glass is for his ice water drink and the other is for his formalin activity. The glasses were identical in shape and size, so you won’t see the difference. Maybe due to stress, he didn’t realize the glass of formalin to the glass of ice water, and doing so, he accidentally drank the formalin.

After some time, he rushed to his mother and said: (edited)"Mom, mom, call an ambulance! Mom, I love you, I made a mistake, I made a mistake!!" And her mother said: "What mistake?" He replied: "I drank formalin!" He was rushed to the hospital, but after 15 minutes, he died.
