Fluorescent green ooze found under street in Canada after sinkhole opens up

Pedestrians in Canada could have been forgiven for thinking they’d stepped onto an alien planet after a sinkhole opened up on a residential street in Toronto.

Underneath the cracked concrete, locals spotted a bizarre fluorescent green ooze seeping to the surface.

It was so bright it looked positively extraterrestrial.

One local reporter posted some fascinating photos of the green goo to Twitter.

But the explanation for the fluoro sludge was quite boring, really.

“This is a huge sinkhole with a glowing green liquid on Hastings Ave off Gerrard,” Richard Southern wrote.

“While it would be on-brand for 2020 to have the Ninja Turtles appear in Toronto, the city tells me it’s a non-toxic dye added to see if the sinkhole is connected to a sewer.”

“Toronto Water staff inspected the sinkhole yesterday evening. Sinkholes can be the result of a damaged or collapsed sewer,” a City of Toronto spokesperson told 680NEWS.

“In order to determine if the sinkhole is connected to the underlying sewer, a dye test was conducted using a green non-toxic dye.”
