Incident date: 
дорога в аэропорт имени Симона Боливара

In 1986, road workers first noticed black slime on a major highway connecting Caracas and Simon Bolivar International Airport. The Chicago Tribune was the first to report this in 1992: at that time, the media described the mucus as "a thick black mess, similar in consistency to chewing gum."

Between the appearance of the slime in the mid-1980s and a newspaper report in the early 1990s, the stain spread over an area of almost 13 kilometers. In addition, during this time, the slime allegedly caused the deaths of 1,800 motorists, although this figure has no direct source.
