Crews find ninth victim in S.C. chemical spill

Investigators on Saturday discovered the body of a factory worker missing since a train carrying chlorine gas wrecked on Thursday.

The worker, whose identity was not released, was found inside the Avondale Mills textile plant in Graniteville, where five workers died after being overcome by the fumes. A total of nine people were killed and more than 250 sickened by the toxic vapors.

The search for the worker delayed crews patching a hole in the train car that was carrying the chlorine gas when the wreck occurred near the Georgia state line.
