Dozens pass out after chemical leak at India meat factory

Following a chemical spill at an Indian meat processing company on Thursday, authorities said that dozens of employees lost consciousness and were sent to the hospital. This was the second such incident in as many days.

In the northern city of Aligarh, a pipe carrying ammonia ruptured, spewing toxic gases into the factory, causing the workers to complain of breathing difficulties and pass out, according to the police.

A local police officer told AFP that “at least 55 personnel, largely women, were brought to the hospital after the spill.” “Most of the employees were dead”

Emergency personnel arrived at the business quickly and began attempting to contain the deadly gas’s spread.

According to police, the factory had been temporarily blocked up and the event was being looked into.

The faintings occurred less than a day after an ammonia gas leak at a shrimp processing facility in eastern Odisha state left 28 workers sick, with at least five of them in critical condition.

India has a high rate of factory accidents because there is no government control and widespread corruption.

In 1984, India saw one of the greatest industrial disasters in history when a gas leak at a pesticide factory operated by the US business Union Carbide resulted in thousands of deaths.
