A pesticide factory owned by the American Union Carbide Corporation released methyl isocyanate gas in the late hours of December 2, 1984. More than half a million people were poisoned that night, according to reports, with an official death toll of almost 5,000.

Thousands of survivors have stated that the leak has left them, their children, and grandkids with persistent health problems such as cancer, blindness, respiratory, immunological, and neurological issues.
