River of blood floods street after tank holding 5,000 litres of gore explodes

This grisly scene is what happened when a tank containing 5,000 litres of cow blood suddenly burst and spilt its sticky contents down a residential street.

In the video, which was filmed by a horrified witness in Buenos Aires, Argentina, a river of dark red blood at least 200 metres long covers a road.

In places, blood has pooled into and filled potholes in the road while people try to reach their cars which have been marooned.

Amazingly, a brave man wearing all-white walks down the blood-drenched street while looking as if he doesn't have a care in the world.

The man filming says in Spanish: “Up to the corner, everyone is taking pictures, we are going to have more complaints than Pérez García", TN reports.

According to local media, the sticky mess was caused by a tank of blood at Livestock San Roque slaughterhouse in Morón suddenly bursting, with the reasons unknown.

Neighbours have said there was a "foul smell" and volunteer firefighters quickly hosed the blood away, although they allegedly missed some side streets.
