RIVERTON Utah (ABC 4 News) - She survived the pepper spray but still feels ill a month after being doused with the chemical.
Last month, Cindy Kohouth was working at cash register number seven when she noticed something wrong.
"I noticed a customer to my right coughing," she recalls. "And then i was feeling a burning sensation in the back of my throat."
Police say Jordan Crane and Madison Durrant were responsible for pepper spraying custoemrs and employees at a Riverton Walmart.
Kohuth remembers everyone including herself in a daze.
"I noticeed more around me were coughing and running from store because they couldn't breath," she says. "The next thing I know I couldn't breath because I'm in the same spot."
Prosecutors say Crane grabbed the pepper spray from Durrant's purse and was releasing the chemical throughout the store.
"The went to the produce section, then the children's area, electronics and the cash registers," Kohuth says."There were children, parents we were all feeling sick."
As many as 70 people were treated by paramedics. A month later, Kohuth still feels the effects.
"Daily I lose my voice and can't stop coughing," she says. "My lungs hurt and I have to use my inhaler quite a bit."
Crane was in a West Jordan court room facing a judge on Wednesday. He faces felony charges for causing a catastrophe and several misdemeanor charges for releasing the chemical. Durrant was charged with a single felony count of obstruction of justice.
"It's a shame they had to ruin lives and harm other people as a so called joke," says Kohuth.
