Any picture may be worth a thousand words, but only a few rare photos tell more than a thousand words.
From the iconic images of Omayra Sanchez's tragic death to the horrifying images of the Bhopal Gas disaster in 1984, the power of photography is still alive and invincible.
Here is the top 10 list of photos that shocked the world:
1.Tragedy of Omayra Sanchez---------
Frank Fournier captured the tragic image of Omayra Sanchez trapped in mud and collapsed buildings. The eruption of the Nevado del Ruiz volcano in Colombia 1985 triggered a massive mudslide. It 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.
