BANGKOK: -- Following the recent trend of locals in the southernmost Narathiwat province drinking water from a “sacred pond” that they believed cured illness, health officials tested the water and found out the pond is actually contaminated with feces.

Officials took action after rumors spread among residents that water from the pond, located in Sri Sakorn district, cured a man’s blindness and that drinking the water can make sickness go away
