Similar incident happened in 1987 in Goiânia city in Brazil, with Cesium 137 of a deactivated radiotherapy equipment that was stolen from an derelict hospital site by metal scrap collectors.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goi%C3%A2nia_accident

Four people died - including a 6 year old girl, daughter of scrap yard owner, who ate a sandwich with hands full of that "fluorescent material", with which she played in her house.

249 other persons have been contaminated, and as the laws in Brazil is for protects the rich and powerful - specially politicians, the hospital's owners were not legally guilty.

One incident that's not well known is the partial meltdown of a Los Angeles area reactor in 1959, which could have easily have changed the course of history had it gone Full Chernobyl.

As it was, there was significant release of radioactive material and persistent health problems in some of the residential areas nearby.
