Storyboard Text

  • In London by 1860 King Cholera had claimed 6536 lives before it came to a stop
  • Many locked themselves in or ran away in fear as death drew near
  • But a brave hero emerged. His name was Doctor John Snow
  • After studying the map he found out that many of the cases drank from a certain pump in Broad street. They removed the handle in memorial of Doctor John Snow
  • The pump got infected when a baby girl carried it and her feces in the cesspool found its way to the well and infected the water
  • Together with the help of others they started a proper sewage system
