There were approximately 200,000 deaths that occurred when the United States dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima. Most of these casualties were civilians.

That's a tough question to answer 100% accurately. If by "casuality", you mean dead, the estimate is about 66,000. If you consider a "casuality" dead and injured people, then the total estimate is 69,000. The total casuality count then being 135,000.

In that horrific day died almost 60.000 people, but the number of casualties was much bigger in the next months. This was one of the most cruel acts ever done in human history.

On the day of the bombing estimated casualty rate was between 45,000 to 83,000. Sixty per cent of the first day casualties were from flash burns.

On Monday, August 6, 1945, the day the "Little Boy" bomb was dropped, around 80,000 people were killed in Hiroshima. By the end of 1945, the number of people dead from the atomic bomb blast came to 90,000 to 140,000, it is estimated. These additional deaths were due to radiation sickness and injuries which ultimately proved fatal.

There was somewhere between 30000 and 50000 casualities that day from just the bomb. The blast and the heatwave were quite lethal.
