DISGUSTING FOOTAGE has emerged of a woman apparently shaving her legs on the edge of a hotel swimming pool while young children float around her.
The clip was uploaded to Reddit by Screwsausage and has already sparked a huge backlash from users, many of whom have been left angry at the woman’s actions.
In the footage, the unknown female can be seen using the razor on her bare legs before rinsing off the blade in the pool water and checking the back of her legs.
It’s an incident that prompted some pretty strong responses from fellow Reddit users online.
"That is so disgusting. Imagine the inadvertent gulp of water that sometimes happens when you’re swimming.. with all the shaved hair in it," one user complains.
"Even worse, she nicks herself with the razor and now there’s blood in the pool and she’s bound to get an infection," another noted, rather morbidly.
It’s not known where the video originates from, though it has been noted that American accents can be heard on the accompanying footage.
The video has already amassed more than 50,000 upvotes since it was shared online.
It’s also left everyone feeling a little queasy, with one user summing up the general feeling thusly:
"If public pools have taught me anything, it’s that people are disgusting animals."
The footage is unlikely to dispell pre-existing notions related to the unhygienic state of swimming pool water
For example, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that the average swimmer contributes at least 0.14 grams of fecal matter to pool water — usually within the first 15 minutes of entering.
