LA Officials Issued A 'Do-Not-Drink' Order After A Dead Body Turned Up In A Hotel Water Tank
LOS ANGELES (AP) — British tourist Michael Baugh and his wife said water had only dribbled out of the taps at the downtown Cecil Hotel for days.
On Tuesday, after showering, brushing their teeth and drinking some of the tap water, they headed down to the lobby and found out why.
The body of a Canadian woman had been discovered at the bottom of one of four cisterns on the roof of the historic hotel near Skid Row. The tanks provide water for hotel taps and would have been used by guests for washing and drinking.
"The moment we found out, we felt a bit sick to the stomach, quite literally, especially having drank the water, we're not well mentally," Michael Baugh, 27, said.

2. Really they issued the order after everyone knew what happened?
You wouldn't have to tell me not to drink. In fact you wouldn't have to tell me anything, I would already be packed and out the door.
