"Nearly Two Years After Paulsboro Spill, Health Concerns Linger"

"After a train crash in Paulsboro, N.J., a cloud of toxic gas sent 28 people to the hospital. Mantua Township resident Ronald Morris was among them.

Nearly, two years later, Morris says his fatigue, a rash on his back and lots of missed workdays are related to his exposure to vinyl chloride. The chemical escaped from an overturned Consolidated Rail Corporation train that Friday morning, Nov. 30.

'It was nothing. It just seemed like normal morning to me,' said Morris, who is a carpenter."
