A N. Carolina man has died of this brain eating amoeba.He became sick after swimming in a man made lake at a Water Park in Cumberland County July 12th. Testing at the CDCP revealed that the man's sickness was caused by Naegleria Fowleri. A single -cell living organism that is often found in WARM freshwater such as Lakes,Rivers,and Hot Springs. The organism is commonly known as the Brain-Eating amoeba and can kill if it enters the body thru the nose, the NCDHHS notes.

Yes, it's some serious stuff, and it's been around throughout time, but now with the internet people hear about it instantly and it's pretty shocking because once you get it the survival rate isn't very good.
Before the internet and social media, people didn't hear about the cases as it wasn't broadcast out of local news if it even made the local news.
Just a few years back a lady on one of our local lakes was fishing out of her kayak and flipped and that night she started having a severe headache, and went to the emergency room.
She had the BEA, but because she got immediate medical attention, and by the Grace of God, she survived.


Just one more cast!

That's why you should fish in lakes not swim in 'em!
