YONGHE CITY, Taiwan (UPI) -- Residents of a complex in Youghe City,
Taiwan, stopped drinking the water after they found the body of a man in
the building's water tower, police say.
The residents decided to check the rooftop water tower after noticing
their drinking water smelled unusual and looked cloudy over the past few
days, the Taipei Times reports.
Police say they believe the 27-year-old man had been in the water tower
for at least three days.
The 20 families living in the building were horrified they might have
been drinking contaminated water, and immediately stopped using tap water
after the corpse was discovered.
No one reported any illness, the Times said.
Police said they believe the man accidentally fell into the 10-foot-high
tower while under the influence of drugs.
Prosecutors will conduct an autopsy to determine the cause of death.
