GRANITEVILLE, S.C. - A church in Graniteville is working with a group studying the health of the town's residents to honor the nine people who died in a train crash and gas leak in Graniteville 10 years ago Tuesday.
The memorial starts at 3 p.m. Saturday at the Mezz Building at USC-Aiken. But before the ceremony, members of the Graniteville Recovery and Chlorine Epidemiology Group will give a workshop on its findings into how the toxic gas affected people's long term health.
Doctors in the study say exposure to chlorine gas has caused many people to have diminished lung capacity.
Bethlehem Baptist Church is helping with the event.
