What does a decomposing body taste like? Guests at the Hotel Cecil in Los Angeles found out the answer to that gruesome question when they unknowingly drank, brushed their teeth, and showered with water from inside a rooftop water tank with the decomposing body of a missing tourist:
Strange things began happening with the hotel's water supply later in the month, according to Sabina and Michael Baugh, a British couple who spent eight days there until checking out Wednesday. The water pressure dropped to a trickle at times.
"The shower was awful," Sabina Baugh said. "When you turned the tap on, the water was coming black first for two seconds and then it was going back to normal."
The tap water "tasted horrible," Baugh said. "It had a very funny, sweety, disgusting taste. It's a very strange taste. I can barely describe it."
