Survive in Wilderness -- Water Sources

Picture yourselves holding a knife with bare minimum clothing on, walking in the wild. The sun is beating down on your skin and it is hot. Your mouth is like Sahara Desert and you are losing your strength since you could not find any food. You see a river stream and are excited since you haven't had any drop of water for hours. You run to the stream and drink from the river without hesitation. After 3 hours, you regret your decision earlier since the river water is not clean and you are having terrible diarrhea......
