Sightseers Get Unexpected TreatWednesday, August 11, 2004

One group of tourists in Chicago got a little too up close and personal with another touring group - with the second group's bodily fluids, at least.
Chicago's First Lady, a sightseeing boat, was taking over 100 people on a tour of the city's world-famous architectural landmarks Sunday afternoon, reports the Chicago Sun-Times.

The captain warned passengers not to look up with open mouths while passing underneath the grated bridges over the Chicago River, reports the Chicago Tribune, or else they might get a "taste of Chicago."

At 1:20 p.m., the boat paused underneath the Kinzie Street bridge (search). That's when one, or maybe two, tour buses passed overhead - and emptied their sewage tanks onto the boat below.

"It went onto people, into eyes and mouths," Lynn Osmond, president and CEO of the Chicago Architecture Foundation (search), told the newspaper.

Chicago's First Lady immediately went back to its dock, Osmond said. Some passengers became nauseous and ran below decks to the bathrooms.

Clothes were so soiled they had to be thrown out, and five people went to Northwestern Memorial Hospital (search) for tests and treatment, police said.

There has to be some kind of enviromental requlations against this. I thought that you are not allowed to dump raw sewage in rivers. IF you have and rv can you just dump in on the ground, or are you required to use a dump station?
