    And Arkansas.  Those pop up if you search tyson death plant in Google.

      When I was googling "tyson chicken drowning" I found a mention of it on a bulletin board that said kentucky and chlorine.  Although I was living in Kentucky at the time and I remember it being local news.

      I googled the hydrogen sulfide deaths in Arkansas and found that a worker there died when he was exposed to the gas and his co-worker was hospitalized in the rescue attempt. I'm positive the incident I remember involved a worker who drowned in a vat of chickens, and the person who attempted to rescue him also died after becoming unconscious and falling into the vat.

    •  Here it is (8+ / 0-)

      Sorry for the multiple posts, but I found it:

      James Dame, Jr. and Mike Hallum fell into an open pit of decomposing chicken parts and by-products and suffocated from the methane gas emitted by the parts at Tyson's Robards, Kentucky facility.
      BTW the google search that finally gave it up?
