WOW!!! South Carolina man DIES of flesh-eating bug just hours after complaining of swollen arm!!!
Anthony Hills, 55, rushed to hospital on Saturday and died hours later

At least third American to die of savage necrotizing fasciitis this year and scores of others have had limbs amputated

Same bacteria that struck Georgia student Aimee Copeland





A South Carolina man has died just hours after being rushed to hospital with a flesh-eating disease.

Anthony Hills, 55, from Charleston, passed away on Saturday having contracted necrotizing fasciitis - the same disease that savagely struck Georgia student Aimee Copeland and saw all four of her limbs amputated.

Hills' family rushed the man to Medical University of South Carolina with a swollen arm after he complained of not feeling well.

Doctors said the infection started in Hills' right arm and right leg and his condition deteriorated rapidly.


'It's a lightning strike kind of thing you know, where it just doesn't happen that often,' Dr Michael Kilby, chief of infectious chief of infectious disease at the hospital, told Live Five News.

'But when it does, it goes sour really fast and needs medical attention really quickly.'

They amputated the affected arm and were considering removing his left leg before he died, according to the TV station.

It is not known how the man contracted the disease.

It's a serious problem basically in stagnant water [freshwater lakes, rivers, etc.] the south. Almost unheard of in the north.

According to this, it sounds like it's almost everywhere, not necessarily stagnant water.


Anthony Hills, 55, dies just hours after rushed to the hospital with flesh-eating disease

‘You don't have to be in the jungle or exposed to animals or have any unusual exposure. It's just normal bacteria that are all around that just get into the wrong place,’ says one doctor.

I was looking to see if there was anything else on Google news about flesh eating bacteria and thought this was interesting, perhaps this may help account for a possible increase?



Did more bacteria put people at risk after the oil spill? Scientists say it's hard to say


But scientists say there's no way to tell if more people were at risk of catching it

By KAREN NELSON — klnelson@sunherald.com

GULFPORT -- Vibrio vulnificus flourished after the BP oil spill, like other bacteria in the Gulf that eat oil.

The difference is that Vibrio vulnificus eats people as well.

It's a type of flesh-eating bacteria that lives in saltwater. It enters people through a wound or raw seafood that carries it. And it has been around the Gulf, the Mississippi Sound and in water along the shoreline of the Gulf states forever.

I worked at a state park in Virginia last year and the chief park ranger told me that people were contracting MRSA from the Shenandoah riverbanks. I later read that the Shenandoah is the second most polluted river in the nation.

I don't know what the first most polluted river is.

I urge everyone to practice amputating their limbs and be prepared to sever any and all appendages including your penis within a period of no more than 30 seconds. Necrotizing fascitis moves fast. If you try to get to a hospital to deal with it it'll be too late.

 Quoting: Laura Bow


I think the reporter probably got a little carried away with the "rushed to the hospital" part. He was likely sick for a day or two before he got weak and then they took him to the hospital. To have necrotizing fasciitis in an arm and a leg, he was likely either injecting drugs or was a diabetic, or both. Wonder if he was getting tattoos?
In his book, "Between Two Ages," Brzezinski wrote: "The technetronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values."
