Texan Girl Dies From Brain-Eating Amoeba

2019-09-17 01:26:29

A 10-year-old Texas girl has died after battling a brain-eating amoeba for more than a week. CNN reports Lily Mae Avant swam in the Brazos River and Lake Whitney near Waco over Labor Day weekend. After being hospitalized, a spinal tap found she had contracted Naegleria fowleri. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says Naegleria fowleri is a single-cell living organism commonly found in warm freshwater. The amoeba is known to enter the body through the nose, travels to the brain and destroys brain tissue. Of the 145 known cases between 1962 and 2018, only four people have survived.
