As per reports, several Instagram bloggers and tourists fell ill after taking a dip in a picturesque looking Monte Nemo Lake in the northwestern coastal region in Spain. Many tourists who were driving up to pose next to the lake complained to damage to the skin and the digestive system. Reports suggest that the Instagram famous lake got its blue tinge from chemical contamination and from now will be considered as a 'toxic dump'.
Monte Nemo is the remains of a second World War Era and the hue of the water is due to chemical contamination. Termed as the 'Galician Chernobyl', it has proved to be harmful for all the tourists who have taken a dip in the lake
A user who recently visited the tourist spot stated that she had to be rushed to the hospital, and suffered from severe vomiting and skin rashes after taking a dip in the 'toxic dump'.
Meanwhile, the internet is left in shock after the news of the 'toxic dump' lake has surfaced on the social space. While one user wrote, "But it looks so inviting and safe", another user remarked saying a 'safety net' should be put around it so tourists are aware. Read the reactions below:
