    1984: GAS LEAK KILLS THOUSANDS IN INDIA

    In
    1984, one of the most deadly industrial accidents in history occurred
    in Bhopal, India. A Union Carbide factory leaked a poisonous gas which
    killed at least 3,800 people living nearby and caused serious illness
    in thousands more. In February 1989, the Indian Supreme Court ordered
    the Union Carbide Corporation to pay $470 million in compensation to
    the victims and their families.
