King's situation came after a Maryland woman said her son contracted a strain of Vibrio while swimming in a bay on June 23. A hospital spokesperson told ABC Action News reporter Michael Paluska they had not treated anyone for the rare flesh-eating bacteria, necrotizing fasciitis.
Fleming had come back from a walk on the beach when her son, Wade, noticed she was bleeding from the shin.
By the next day, Martinez told she was hospitalized.
'The infection from the bacteria did not reach the point of it causing [necrotizing fasciitis] and actually destroying my muscle tissue and arm only because I acted quickly on getting medical treatment'. Necrotizing fasciitis is one of the infections vibrio vulnificus produces.
They had travelled with their two children Jonathan and Jensen from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to visit Ms Fleming in Florida for a week. Kylei Parker was on a beach vacation with her family in Florida when she was skateboarding and got a scrape on her toe.
The family spent the rest of the day together and then went to dinner.
A life in Florida had always been the dream of Carolyn "Lynn" Fleming, who was originally from Pittsburgh but was most recently a resident of Ellenton, Florida.
Her leg became infected with necrotizing fasciitis, commonly called flesh-eating bacteria. She was transported to Blake Medical Center, where she was put on life support.
Tragically, Fleming died Thursday after suffering two strokes and going into septic shock during surgeries to save her injured leg.
"There are so many things we keep replaying that we could've done differently", Traci Fleming said. We didn't know to look for any signs. "I DID NOT have any open wounds, NOR did I swim in any water that day". The bacteria could be harmful if the injury goes untreated.Читайте также: Quake rattles Dodger Stadium during game
Vibrio can be in any body of water.
Vibrio bacteria can also cause life-threatening contamination if someone eats raw or undercooked seafood or gets a wound wet with seawater or brackish water.
"Necrotizing fasciitis likes warm, lower salinity water, so you're more likely to find it on intracoastal side than the beach side", Gulig said.
East Coast beaches have had different latest reports of infections.
Last week, 12-year-old Kylei Brown, of IN, was diagnosed with a Vibrio bacteria infection after going for a swim at a beach IN Destin.
"If you catch it early, it's treatable with antibiotics", Gulig said.
Dr. Stephen Spann, dean of the University of Houston College of Medicine, said that having a wound exposed to brackish water where these bacteria live is one way to get an infection; eating contaminated shellfish - "oysters, primarily" - is another.
A Florida grandmother has died from a rare flesh-eating bacteria and it's sparking a warning for beachgoers in some areas of Florida.
"It was just a little scratch, I never in a million years thought it was going to turn into something that big, oh my gosh", Barnes said. "Unfortunately, we didn't know about necrotizing fasciitis and didn't get her real help until five days later".
"If I had gone to sleep and had woken up with it at the rate it was spreading, I might not have an arm right now", said King.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
