Sewage 'tsunami' kills four in Gaza

That's a lot of shit.

At least four Palestinians drowned in a tsunami of raw sewage on Tuesday when a water treatment reservoir burst, flooding a village in the northern Gaza Strip.

Drowning in raw sewage. I think I just found the worst way to die.

The deluge, triggered by the collapse of a septic system aid organisations had long warned was dangerously overburdened, submerged dozens of homes in the Bedouin farming village of Umm al-Nasr beneath a cesspool of foul-smelling effluent.


Village children clung to wooden doors floating on the putrid waters as rescuers used boats to help the victims.

That should scar them good.

"The situation is very bad," village mayor Ziad Abu Thabet said.

Good thing we have leaders like Ziad Abu Thabet to be the voice of reason during disasters like these. Mr. Thabet, would you say that the flood of human waste didn't make people happy?
