This packet is a collection of information relating to the case of Patrick Hayes being smothered to death by an avalanche of corn in a grain storage bin at Showell Farms Chicken Processing Plant in Defuniak Springs, Fla. Each year 6,000 people are killed on the job. Hayes' parents formed a group, The FIGHT Project (Families in Grief Hold Together), to help others. This packet contains articles about their OSHA claim as well as the Freedom of Information problems they are encountering. See Morgue File #12472 for transcript and tape of Hayes case.
