The salt will only make you more thirsty , and eventually dehydrate you more and lead to electrolyte imbalance. thus causing your kidneys to shut down, which will eventually lead to death by kidney failure. One possible symptom is hallucination

It is extremely unwise to drink seawater because it contains a large amount of salt. There is too much salt in it for the human body to process and you would eventually die from dehydration.
