Deadly Amoeba Kills High School Girl After River Swim And Infection

A 16 year old Florida girl has died after a rare parasite infected her brain during a swim in a river near her home. Health officials have not determined a cause of death, but they suspect that Nash may have caught the parasite that causes the infection, amoebic encephalitis, during her swim. The dangerous and rare parasite is commonly found in stagnant freshwater during hot weather, as well as poorly tended pools or hot tubs. The parasite enters the victim through the nose and then attacks the brain and spinal cord.

There are typically fewer than five cases a year in the entire country, and only one person has survived the infection since the 1970s.
