China’s ‘River of Blood’: Jian Turns Red After Chemical Dump

Visitors to the Jian River in Luoyang, China were shocked earlier this week when they saw the water had become a “river of blood,” dyed bright red after an illegal dye dump by nearby chemical plant, an incident that has since launched an official investigation by the Luoyang Municipal Environmental Protection Bureau.

Locals were subject to the water’s eerie, blood-like color for several days before government officials tracked the source of the color not to a Moses-like End Times but to two small chemical plants dumping red dye into the city’s storm water pipe.
