New mystery: Chinese river turns blood red overnight!
Locals are baffled as it has never happened before and nobody knows the cause yet.
The river normally flows quietly through Xinmeizhou village in eastern China’s Zhejiang province. But, on July 25, 2014, the river rapidly turned blood red and start having a strange smell.
Possible reasons why the water of this Chinese river has suddenly and mysteriously changed color
The substance responsible for this bloody color change is unknown. Villagers report the river was flowing normally at 4am. It started to redden at around 6am, and suddenly had turned crimson blood.
There are no chemical plants along the upper stream. I would like to know if there are any slaughterhouses or clothing factories around. Is agriculture widespread in the area? Environmental protection inspectors are now sampling water to discover the cause of this strange and mysterious event.
It is not the first time that a river turns blood red mysteriously. Intense agriculture may lead to red algae blooms coloring the water blood red. Blood or dye spills may also trigger such an amazing and baffling phenomenon. How do you think this river turned blood red?
