Burial of an Unkown Child (India)

The Bhopal disaster was an industrial disaster that occurred in Bhopal, India, resulting in the death of about 3,000 people according to the Indian Supreme Court. However, testimonies from doctors who provided medical assistance during the tragedy claim over 15,000 were dead in the first month alone.

The incident took place in the early hours of the morning of 3 December 1984, in the heart of the city of Bhopal in the state of Madhya Pradesh. A Union Carbide subsidiary pesticide plant released 40 tonnes of methyl isocyanate (MIC) gas, killing approximately 3,800 people. Bhopal is frequently cited as one of the world's worst industrial disasters.

This unknown child has become the icon of the world's worst industrial disaster, caused by the US multinational chemical company, Union Carbide.

It is pretty sad with something like this happen. I think that children don't have to be involved in this kind of disasters.

It does suck that young children have to go through this sort of thing, but unfortunately when a disaster like this happens you can't just say that the children should be protected, right?
