******Brain-eating amoeba suspected in SW Indiana swimming death*******
INDIANAPOLIS | A parasite commonly referred to as the "brain-eating amoeba" infected a man teaching his daughter to swim in a southwestern Indiana lake, killing him within weeks, his father said Tuesday.

State and federal officials have not yet confirmed that Waylon Abel, 30, of Loogootee, died of a rare, usually fatal infection known as primary amebic meningoencephalitis, or PAM, but an autopsy report released Friday listed it as the primary cause of death.

Abel went to Jasper Memorial Hospital with a headache, nausea vomiting and fever on Aug. 4 and received antibiotics, the autopsy report said. He returned 12 hours later and was diagnosed with what doctors suspected was bacterial meningitis.

"He said, 'Dad, I don't feel good. Pray for me.' I told him I would," said John Abel of Shoals.

The Loogootee man's condition worsened, and he was placed on a ventilator and airlifted Aug. 7 to St. Mary's Medical Center in Evansville, where he died hours later, five days before his 31st birthday. The story was first reported Aug. 31 in the Washington Times-Herald.
