As you may have noticed in the deposition it took eccentric forms and often looks as if its a vegetable. From the vessel, there caustic liquid which enters into the river, but its a question that whats inside?

It is peppered with high levels of arsenic, copper, zinc and lead. Many can not resist the temptation to jump in. Drinking this water is strictly prohibited.

If you do not immediately see a doctor, then start vomiting, hematuria, cramping, hair loss, abdominal pain, leading to coma and then death. Of course, a quick dive into the water stream will not cause any danger to life. But Precautions are better then cure.
