Instagram 'Influencers' mistake wastewater for beautiful lake - get sick

    Several tourists were hospitalized after swimming in a Spanish toxic dump known as ‘Galician Chernobyl’ for Instagram photos. 

The lake, also known as "Galician Chernobyl", located in north-west Spain, is actually the site of an old tungsten mine dating from World War II and has been abandoned since the 1980s.

The stunning blue of the water comes from chemical contamination and can cause serious health issues.

Last week, several Instagrammers said they became sick after coming into contact with Monte Neme lake's sparkling blue waters.

Instagrammers said that they went into the water because "it was very pretty" and there were no warning signs up.

The influencers who visited the lake suffered from rashes and stomach problems. Which, however, landed them into hospitalization for several days.

However, one of the influencers mentioned in one of the newspapers that the toxic water suffered from an allergic reaction for two weeks. The influencer said, “They were a little bad, yes, but the photo was worth it.”

Manuel Ferreiro, a doctor at University Hospital of Coruña, said, "Brief exposure will most likely cause eye and skin irritation but a longer time in the water and digestion of the toxins could cause stomach problems, vomiting, and diarrhea."

Now Salvemos Cabana, a local environmental lobby group, are asking lawmakers to inform the public of Monte Neme’s dangers and limit access to the lake.

Anything for the gram.
