Quick Recap: The body of a 21 year old Canadian missing since early February was found in the rooftop water tank of a Los Angeles hotel by a worker investigating why the water pressure was low. Hotel guests may have been drinking, brushing their teeth and showering in this water for more than 2 weeks. Guests complained of a funny taste, and issues with the water turning black during showers, however it is unclear whether any health risk was actually posed to the public.

See the full story here: Corpse found in L.A. hotel's water tank - CNN.com

Questions of whether a health risk is involved may still be unanswered...but the mental health of those guests staying at the Hotel Cecil and drinking eau de corpse is undoubtedly NOT in question. I can't even imagine.

Okay...so this is clearly NOT the hotel's fault. But still...I wonder if it is normal practice for Hotels to make their water supply so accessible?

I admit that the idea of drinking it is absolutely repugnant. Call me crazy, but I'm just as disgusted by the idea of showering in it. That whole description of the water turning black as the person was showering was enough to make me lose my cookies. I mean, if the water comes out of the tap black...you obviously wouldn't drink it. But if it happens while you're showering...

The Chinese I ate at lunch was already making me sick. Thanks Maggie

Seriously, though, that is just disgusting. Of course, from the pictures, the hotel kind of looks sketchy anyways.

Makes you want to double check every hotel's water supply before you stay there, doesn't it? I can't think about it too much....

Ok and they say bottled water is a scam?! lol I'm so happy I drink bottled water and even brush with it in hotels because I HATE water from different places.

Lucy, at least you had Chinese and not Canadian heh

Anyone seen the movies Dark Water(American & Japanese versions)? You should...haha

This is just gross. Sad for this girl...wonder how she ended up in there.
