& # 39; They were all unconscious & # 39 ;, he revealed in a message to Facebook.
Mr. Dunn feared that the group, including his wife Nancy, had enriched their drinks, Yahoo reported.
He then made the life-saving decision to open a window in the neighborhood, which made the group regain consciousness.
& # 39; Had I not stood from my seat from time to time and looked through the only open window to get a breath of fresh air, I would have succumbed and we would all have been dead & # 39 ;, he said.
The group went straight to Fiona Stanley Hospital where they were placed in a hyperbaric chamber to wash away the carbon monoxide (photo)
