ecently, an old man was spotted taking a dump while leisurely swimming a lap in a public pool in Suzhou.
A surveillance camera captured the moment when the man nonchalantly squeezed out a turd, causing his fellow swimmers to scramble out of the water, pointing their fingers at the old man in disgust. But, as the smell of feces pervaded the air, the man shamelessly walked out of the facility without a word of apology.
Following the unpleasant incident, a staff member was left to fish out the poop with a net. The pool was temporarily closed down for some serious cleaning. As for the swimmers who were forced to swim in the poo-infested waters, their entrance fees were refunded to compensate them for the disgusting experience.
While public swimming pools in China aren’t generally known for their pristine waters, it is rather rare for an adult to purposely defecate in a pool. Most urine or feces typically come from children. According to a local report, 85 percent of boys and 45 percent of girls aged 7 to 17 admitted to having peed in a pool before.
Abroad, Chinese tourists have gained an unenviable reputation of crapping in unusual locales, including inside subway stations and airports, and even outside a Burberry store in the UK. Most recently, a mainland teacher sparked outrage when he let one of his students take a dump inside an MTR station in Hong Kong.
