What will happen when a human red blood cell is placed in a hypotonic environment?

If a human red blood cell is placed in a hypotonic environment, the red blood cell will swell and eventually burst. The reason for this is because a hypotonic solution has a higher osmotic pressure compared to the cytoplasm of the red blood cell. Thus, the water from the hypotonic solution moves into the red blood cell causing it to rupture.
