Many disapprove of the man’s action, saying that flood waters are dirty and polluted and that he could get sick from consuming it, “Don’t even try. That is reckless and dangerous!” one person said. 

…and we totally agree! Flood water is very dangerous.

Be aware that flood water may contain sewage and eating or drinking anything contaminated by flood water can cause diarrheal diseases such as E.coli or Salmonella.
