E. coli in Oklahoma and Washington Puts Kids at Risk
A weekend at the lake may be to blame for sending two Green Country Oklahoma children to the hospital. The health department says it hasn’t found evidence the bacteria was related to lake exposure, however the two families, who were not at the lake together, say the water is the only common denominator.
A young Selah Washington boy is still in the hospital with a severe E. coli infection. The six-year old has been in Seattle for almost two weeks. Yakima County has seen an unusual increase in E. coli cases so far this year. The total already matches the last two years combined. The family believes the boy became in contact with the E. coli from drinking water from the Naches River while the family was camping or from spinach.
