British tourist Michael Baugh and his wife said water had only dribbled out of the taps at the downtown Cecil Hotel for days.
On Tuesday, after showering, brushing their teeth and drinking some of the tap water, they headed down to the lobby and found out why.
The body of a Canadian woman had been discovered at the bottom of one of four cisterns on the roof of the historic hotel near Skid Row. The tanks provide water for hotel taps and would have been used by guests for washing and drinking.
Authorities say the guest don’t need to worry about falling ill, as tests confirmed no sign of live bacteria in the tank. Officials believe the chlorine in the water likely killed any potentially harmful bacteria. Read for instance CTV News
