More People Getting Sick in Treasure Coast Waterways

More and more people are getting sick, or odd infections, they claim, from swimming in Treasure Coast Waterways.

Medical Examiners confirmed 65 year-old David Trudell died last week from a bacterial blood infection.  Trudell’s family says David was fishing in Fort Pierce on July 18 in the Indian River Lagoon about 5 miles north of the North A1A bridge when he cut his foot on a fish fin.

Now this week, Bruce Osborne says after hearing of Trudell’s death, he took his leg infection seriously.  Osborne believes he was infected by the bacteria in the water near the Stuart Sandbar.
