Toxic gas leak at Indian chemical plant kills at least 11 and hospitalizes hundreds | CNN

At a chemical plant in India on Thursday morning rescuers from India’s National Disaster Response Force could be seen running through the area in hazmat suits. Styrene, normally a flammable liquid, leaked out of the plant in the form a gas and began affecting people in and near their homes. Officials have reported that at least 11 people have died so far, with many slipping unconscious outside their homes or while they were sleeping. Tej Bharath, a senior Vishakhapatnam district official, has commented that over 1,000 people were initially evacuated, and dozens of others were unconscious when medics arrived on the scene.
