Ravers claim “reduction of visibility in both eyes” after swimming in glow-in-the-dark pool at a Sunset Park party

Bubble Kingdom

Next time you go, ahem, raving, make sure and stay away from the glowing green pool of water. Two women have allegedly suffered ill affects after going to Return to the Bubble Kingdom on August 4 at a Sunset Park Warehouse:

The two 19-year-old women, Rocio Marie Cabrera and Sarah Deodath of the Bronx, have now filed a lawsuit against the promoters as well as warehouse owner Atlantic Properties. It states that the organizers “dumped toxic chemicals into the large pool to alter ‘the color and/or reflective properties’ of the water,'” which led to the women ingesting and absorbing the “dangerous, hazardous and/or toxic chemicals.” Their lawyer, Keith Sullivan, called the pool a “chemical soup.” The suit states the women have been left with a “permanent reduction of visibility in both eyes.”

…Another attendee at the party tells us that the pool was “the size of a typical backyard above-ground circular pool,” and that “no matter how screwed up you were, it was easy to see you shouldn’t go in that pool–it was filthy, the water was green, and it was leaking into the basement.” She added that the pool access was only for those with the $90 VIP tickets, “but I didn’t see any signs or security keeping regular ticket holders out.” -[Gothamist]

Of course someone commented, “This is BS. I was there and a bunch of people I know were in this pool and no one suffered any ill effects,” so the jury is still out on the facts of the case. Check out video from the event here.

The next party thrown by the Unicorn Meat gang, who put together the Return to Bubble Kingdom Party, goes down on October 27 and is called Illuminate.
