Breached tanker car removed from NJ creek

A ruptured tanker car that released a hazardous chemical in southern New Jersey last month has been removed from a creek where it fell.  The U.S. Coast Guard used a 150-ton crane to move the car Tuesday.  The car leaked vinyl chloride after it derailed on a bridge in Paulsboro on Nov. 30. No one was seriously sickened, though dozens of people were checked out at a hospital.  More than 200 homes were evacuated because of the leak.
