Ignoring safety standards and maintenance procedures at the Union Carbide India Limited (UCIL) pesticide plant in Bhopal, a leak of methyl isocyanate  gas and other chemicals triggered a  massive environmental and human disaster.

life-and-death surgeries. His courage and unwillingness to die gave him the nickname: Saleh Khalaf, “Lion Heart”
Pulitzer Prize award winning photojournalist Deanne Fitzmaurice won the highly respected award in 2005 for the photographic essay. The shocking photographs ran in the San Francisco Chronicle in a five-part series written by Meredith May.

from the eruption of the Nevado del Ruiz volcano in Colombia  in 1985. which devastated towns
and killed 25,000 people.After 3 days of struggling, Omayra died due to hypothermia and gangrene.
Her tragic death accentuated the failure of officials to respond quickly and save the victims of Colombia’s worst ever natural disaster. Frank Fournier took this photo shortly before Omayra died. Her agonizing death was followed live on TV by hundreds of millions of people around the world and started a major controversy. May her soul rest in peace…
