    While this is considered “extreley rare”, with only 23 people listed as dying from 1995 to 2004, I would suggest that this goes undiagnosed in many more deaths. I had a son die suddenly while in Argentina six years ago. The autopsy & toxoligy reports all came back negative. He was a healthy 20 year old boy! We only pieced this together fairly recently as a possible cause of death and will never know for sure. December is summertime in Argentina which is when this occured. He had declared swimmming in a local river, and complained of headaches just days prior to his death. Leading up to his death he had mentioned talking with a ghost and seeing a snake in the water pipe. We had no idea what any of this meant at the time, but have come to realize that he more than likely was hallucinating the last day or two prior to his death. All symptoms and the time frame of it all surely points to this Naegleria Fowleri bacteria, but was not diaonosed as such. How many other times throughout the years could this have gone undetected?

    I think everyone is swimming at their own risk. People know it can kill them. If their stupid enough to get in the water, then it’s their own fault. The city should do their part and just close down the damn lakes if their killing people!
