New body camera footage shows East Palestine train derailment evacuation efforts

ABC News has obtained new footage, via a public records request, of evacuation efforts on the night when a Norfolk Southern-operated train carrying toxic chemicals derailed in East Palestine, Ohio, earlier this year. 

The footage, released first to ABC News on Thursday, shows roughly 30 minutes of body camera as Ohio State Highway Patrol went from door to door on the night of Feb. 3, in the immediate aftermath of the fiery crash, and evacuation efforts several days later -- when the risk of a major explosion at the site amped up authorities' request to get people out of the area.
