The curse that resulted in the birth of Bhishma:

The 8 Vasus stole Vasishta's cow and as a consequence were cursed to be born as mortals. The Vasu who instigated them was Dyou and he was cursed to live for a long time on Earth, remaining childless. The others would be delivered from their curse within the year of their birth.

As per the curse, Ganga bears the 8 Vasus to Shantanu, throwing 7 of them in her waters at birth and the 8th lives to achieve greatness as Bhishma.
