Because distilled water is hypotonic (lower salt levels) to a red blood cell (RBC), through simple diffusion or osmosis, the distilled water will naturally move to an area of lower concentration of water (the RBC) and enter the RBC until both solutions are equal and thus, cause the RBC to swell and even burst (lyse).
