Instagram Influencers Swam In A Toxic Dump Thinking It Was A Lake And Now They're Sick

Social media influencers visited a seemingly beautiful lake in Spain hoping to score a great pic and some likes. Instead, they're being hospitalized with skin rashes and illnesses.


Situated in Galicia, Spain, Mount Neme was once a high-value tungsten mine, but it’s been an abandoned quarry for years.


Social media has taken over the lives of 800 million people that go on the site every month, and even more so, the 500 million people who check Instagram each day.


Yet, nobody has had their lives infiltrated by social media like those trying to become, or already succeeding as, an Instagram influencer.


People that care more about how they look on the Gram than what their life is really like aren't hard to find these days. It is scary but true.


It seems that people will stop at nothing to get that perfect shot which makes their life look ideal, bring on the likes and the follows!


Several social media users have stooped to a whole new low; some without even realizing it, endangering their health for a photo in or near what seems to be a beautiful lake in Spain.


In reality, the turquoise lake tucked between towering hills is a toxic waste dump.


The foreign newspaper Cope has reported that Mount Neme is the site of an old mine. During World War II, toxic waste from the mine ran off into the lake and was then left abandoned for years.


All this time, nobody has really gone near the lake, although Galicia has used photos of the area to promote tourism – assuming nobody would actually find the spot and go in the lake.


Despite the toxic waste lurking beneath the surface, the water appears a breathtaking shade of blue which looks anything but harmful to your health, thus tricking several Instagramers into taking a dip in hopes of getting a great photo their followers will like.


As more and more people geotag the stunning body of water, more and more people are influenced to visit the area. Some people have even got in the water.


Many of those who went in the water ended up in the hospital because of skin irritations and burns. Others suffered exposure to lead or aluminum, which can dramatically impact your overall health in the short term and long term.


Officials are currently trying to ban entry to the area to stop other people from going in or near the toxic lake.


There's concern that people will get hurt on the sharp and jagged rocks which surround the water, or become sick from the water if they go in.


Medical experts say that if you enter the water for a short time, you'll encounter “minor skin issues.” If you ingest the water, there's a range of health issues, such as digestive disorders, that can occur.


Children are particularly vulnerable to the toxic effects of lead and might suffer profound and permanent adverse health effects, such as to the development of the brain and nervous system.


Celebrities make even more than macro-influencers – it is rumored that Kim Kardashian and Selena Gomez make about $550,000 for every sponsored post.


However, these numbers pale in comparison to what Beyoncé gets paid to promote a product. It is rumored that she makes up to one million dollars per post. Trust us, you won’t find Beyoncé at that lake – no way, no how!
