In December 1984, a catastrophic gas leak occurred at the Union Carbide pesticide plant in Bhopal, India. The gas leak originated from tank number 610 in plant section “C” and involved a mixture of toxic methyl isocyanate gas along with water. Due to a chemical reaction, the tank ruptured, releasing the toxic gas into the air. This tragic incident resulted in the loss of approximately 4,000 lives, with many families suffering the consequences for generations. The Bhopal gas tragedy remains one of the deadliest industrial disasters in history and had a profound impact on the affected community and the world’s understanding of industrial safety and chemical handling procedures.
