A Florida man died after contracting a flesh-eating bacterial infection while wading in a river on Saturday.
Henry Konietzky, 59, succumbed to the deadly infection just 28 hours after being exposed while setting crab traps in the Halifax River in Volusia County, according to Click Orlando.
"They tried multiple antibiotics, but nothing was touching it. Nothing even fazed it," Debbie Stack, Konietzky's sister-in-law, told the station.
The infected area initially looked no more serious than a bug bite, but Stack said the lesion soon festered. Before long, the infection spread to Konietzky's kidneys. By Monday, he was gone.
Konietzky's death is the latest in a string of cases in Florida involving Vibrio vulnificus. The salt water bacteria, which are related to those that cause cholera, have already afflicted 26 people in Florida this year, causing nine deaths, according to Florida Department of Health data.
With oceans getting warmer and warmer, this nasty disease is spreading. Fatal cases have been logged in Denmark and the Baltic Sea.
Don't go swimming, Contards!! Baaa ha aha ha aha haha aha aha ah aha
Oceans are NOT getting warmer. It is a liberal trick.
I am surprised that Rush Limbaugh is not screaming that Vibrio Vulnificus is an Anker Baybee illegal immigrant that moved to the Gulf Coast to get free welfare, and should be deported.
A giant fence across Mexico won't be enough. We will need to build a giant baggie across the entire ocean and a giant screen across the entire atmosphere to keep all the liberal, illegal pathogens out of the U.S. due to non-global warming.
