    Man dies from flesh-eating bacteria after swimming in Florida

    Man dies from flesh-eating bacteria after swimming in Florida, no health warning issued

    Published June 25, 2015 FoxNews.com

    (GoFundMe)

    A Florida man died June 16 after contracting flesh-eating bacteria, but the state health department has yet to issue a warning, his family claims.

    Cason Yeager, 26, of Lake County, Fla., contracted vibrio vulnificus after swimming about two miles south of Pine Island Beach, according to his mother, Karen Yeager. Vibrio vulnificus, a bacterium that lives in warm salt water, can be transmitted through contaminated seafood or an open wound exposed to seawater, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).


    "This has been a nightmare for me to say the least and nobody should have to go through this," Karen told WTSP.


    Yeagerís death certificate wasnít signed by The Villages Regional Hospital until June 23, WTSP reported, and the state has yet to notify the public.


    According to Karen, her son was diagnosed with autoimmune disorder 10 years ago, but did not have problems since, and was healthy. She is now fundraising for her sonís funeral expenses on GoFundMe.


    Now, she wants the public to be aware of the dangerous bacterium.


    "I'm not telling anyone don't go into the water just do your due diligence and make sure that you're not going to harm yourself," she told WTSP.

    Texas woman blinded by flesh-eating bacteria during mud run

    8:17 a.m. Thursday, June 25, 2015 | Filed in: Nation

    DALLAS ó A Texas woman took part in a mud run and wound up blind in one eye. Why? Flesh-eating bacteria.

    Brittany Williams lost vision in one eye after muddy debris hit the eye and caused a cut that allowed flesh-eating bacteria to enter and destroy her cornea.


    "My eye started hurting, like maybe I've got mud or some debris in there," Williams told KTVT. "When I opened my eye, it was just like white. The whole room was white."

    The flesh-eating bacteria she contracted, known as necrotizing fasciitis, "is a bacterial skin infection that enters the body through a wound such as a cut, scrape or bite," according to CBS.


    Williams spent a week in the hospital, piling up $100,000 in medical bills. Her family started a GoFundMe page that is helping defray the costs.


    This isnít the first case of flesh-eating bacteria that has caused harm to someone in the past few weeks. It was revealed that a woman in Georgia being treated for flesh-eating bacteria slipped into a coma for 11 days. A Florida man contracted flesh-eating bacteria while fishing, which landed him in the hospital. Florida has also warned of the dangers of a more rare type of flesh-eating bacteria, Vibrio vulnificus, which thrives in warm water.
