"Hope the trip to the ER after was worth the swim," TikTok user @jess.renaee cheekily commented.

User @jw_on_re claimed in a comment that taken a dip in the murky water of the San Antonio River a decade ago and still had the rash to prove it.

Others asserted that that the woman must have been a tourist. After all, locals know better than to swim along the River Walk.

Other than it being illegal, it's also pretty gross.
