Look at these alarming images of the Chinese Zhongting river… It has turned blood red!
This color shift has baffled residents in Tianjin, China and was most probably caused by illegal waste discharge.
Locals have been left baffled after a section of the Zhongting River, close to Shengfang town turned red.
A wide stretch of the water is completely covered with red patches.
It is thought that the colour change which occurred on the April 12 has been caused by the illgeal dumping of excessive industrial waste.
Local residents say the water changed colour all of a sudden and that this event isn’t an isolated case as the river changed a bright red shade a year ago.
In July 2014, residents of Xinmeizhou village, Zhejiang province were shocked to find that the nearby river had turned red in a matter of minutes.
I wouldn’t even try to drink this toxic water!
