    Viewers on social media, petrified by the footage posted on Twitter, claimed it was proof of biblical prophecies coming true, and cited references to the Bible.

    Chilling footage showing a river in Canada flowing with blood-red water has stirred up the internet. Like something out of a horror movie, the video of the Etobicoke Creek in Ontario, posted by a user by the name of @adamcarson0205 on Twitter on 25 March shows the water completely red.

    ​With tempers frayed globally over the coronavirus pandemic and reports of deadly locust plagues swarming over swathes of territory, needless to say many on social media who saw the footage, which generated over 62,000 views, were convinced it was an omen of bad things to come.

    Many viewers were inspired by the footage to quote Bibical references.

    Some netizens were quick to note that the eerie phenomenon came just before Passover.

    ​However, according to a twitter post by Peel Public Works, there was a more mundane explanation for the scary vision.
    The group said in a tweet:

    "Approximately 400L of red ink was spilt into the Etobicoke Creek.The Ministry of the Environment and Conservation and Parks are on site and clean up is underway.”
