Mastriano visited a river in East Palestine, Ohio, and showed the world the toxic chemicals that are now polluting a run off of the Ohio River.

ABC 27 News had more details to report:
Pennsylvania Sen. Doug Mastriano (R-33) visited East Palestine, Ohio and neighboring towns on Saturday following the devastating train derailment that took place two weeks ago.
In an exclusive interview with ABC 27 News, Mastriano said the derailment had the potential to be “one of the biggest ecological disasters in Pennsylvania history.”
“I was only there for four hours with my chief of staff, and my skin is burning, our throat and eyes are burning [and] we’ve had some coughing and skin rashes going on,” Mastriano said.
Residents near the derailment have reported similar symptoms, including headaches. Dead fish have also been spotted in the Ohio River near East Palestine.
“The folks in Pennsylvania that we interacted with feel like they’ve been abandoned,” Mastriano said. “There’s nothing coming to them. They haven’t heard from anybody — whether [that be] Harrisburg or Norfolk Southern.”
Previously Sen. JD Vance visited a contaminated river in Ohio too.
