Man Seeks Others To Join NY Air Brake Lawsuit

He's encouraging people who believe they've been affected by the pollution to visit the website www.nyabsuperfund.com.
He suffers from chronic nerve damage and loss of bodily functions like bladder control.
But he's not alone.
His childhood neighbor also has nerve damage in his left leg.
They are health problems they, and hundreds of others who've joined the lawsuit, attribute to the pollution.
"When we first started, the people were coming out of the woodwork with their stories. It was just one on top of the other," said Jim Barker, who joined the lawsuit.
The state Department of Environmental Conservation says the site has been properly cleaned, but Williams disagrees with that.
"When it comes to people who are sick, their children who are sick, their grandkids who are sick - the deaths in the area," said Williams.
