Very strange this happened in a home? There was a case here in FL a few years back where a healthy teenager, actually I think the guy was 21, went swimming in a water canal or swimming hole, it wasn't a lake or the ocean and that is about all I know and a one celled organism went up his nose and he died a few days later. It ate out his brain. I know it sounds crazy. I will see if I can find the story.
Scary stuff...and this was from the faucet???!!! And 3 people???!!!

I saw this on Yahoo, it's like running the gauntlet getting to my mailbox everyday.
As a rule, I don't think anything on THAT website should get posted here. Please don't dumb down this alternative (and hopefully progressive) website any further.
If everyone activated their inner bs monitor, think what we could accomplish...
