11 year old girl in South Carolina in critical condition, infected with brain eating amoeba


This bacteria is found in warm freshwater but not in salt water and the dangerous life threatening infection is possible when people are swimming or jumping in water allowing it to go up their noses and travel to the brain. The fatality rate for an infected person is more than 97 percent, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Hannah Katherine is being treated at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston and doctors had done everything it could for the girl. Unfortunately only a miracle could save her. A page – “Prayers for Hannah Katherine” – was set at Facebook to describe this situation and a fundraising account to support Hannah and her family was also opened.
