The famous tourist destination Marina Beach spit out toxic foam in Chennai on December 02. The pollution on the shores of the Marina Beach and the ocean was visible with the sea frothing up with each wave. A pungent smell also filled the aura along the coast as toxic foam floated in the breeze. The foam could have been formed because of the rains that Chennai has received in the last few couple of days. Children were running and playing in the toxic foam and water without realising that it contains chemicals that could be harmful to them.
