New Video Shows Fish Dying In River Near Ohio Chemical Spill


A woman who filmed a river in North Lima, Ohio posted a video of hundreds of minnows dead in a local river.

The river where she filmed was just 11 miles away from the site where a train carrying toxic chemicals derailed.

Ever since officials decided to burn the chemicals animals and fish have been reportedly dying in nearby towns

A news reporter even went to the scene:

MSN added these details:

An Ohio train derailment prompted officials to conduct a “controlled release” of chemicals onboard.

Officials have said well water in the region is safe for consumption, but residents aren’t sure.

Days after a catastrophic train derailment prompted officials to conduct a “controlled release” of the toxic chemicals onboard, animals are dying at alarming rates in East Palestine, Ohio.

A woman in North Lima, roughly 11 miles away from the village of East Palestine, where the crash occurred, checked on her chicken coop on February 7 only to find her five hens and rooster laying lifeless, with no sign of a predator entering their enclosure.

“I’m beyond upset and quite panicked, ’cause this, they may be just chickens, but they’re family,” Amanda Breshears told local news outlet ABC27 WHTM.

Though local officials have indicated drinking water in the region is safe to drink, CBS News reported, and the Environmental Protection Agency is monitoring air quality and has indicated there is no reason for concern, Breshears and other Ohio residents aren’t convinced.
