CLYDE, Ohio— Children are getting sick in Sandusky County and a United States senator wants the federal government to take action.
"Is it a local company?" asked Senator Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio). "Is it something about the soil, something about the air? Is a company polluting the water, the soil or the air? All of those questions we need to answer for the future."
Sen. Brown wants more federal funding to find the cause of disease clusters, like Clyde, Ohio. Thirty-five kids have been diagnosed with cancer since 1996 and four children have died.
Fremont, Clyde and Green Springs make-up one cluster, according to David Pollick from the Sandusky County Health Department. "We've had to standby while kids have passed away and that's one of the hardest things as a parent and grandparent to deal with, its been very hard for us to not be able to give these folks the answers they need."
