From reader S D

Thought I'd send this to you for your online newspaper.  Sad news to say the least:

http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcontent/dws/dn/latestnews/stories/090110dnmetbacteriadeath.aa9f494f.html

I agree. Very sad, about a little boy who was swimming in the Paluxy at Dinosaur Valley State Park, and got an infection. No one else in his family got it,.  It does appear to be extremely rare, and like the father said, why it struck a 7 year old boy and not a 34 year old man, who knows?

The disease Kyle contracted is extremely rare: The CDC states that from 1998-2007, there were 33 reports in the U.S. The last case in Texas was reported in Lee County in 2005. It’s almost always fatal.

Rest in peace, little one.

P.S. Just got another comment regarding this from CT

THIS IS NOT TO OVERLY ALARM, BUT TO SIMPLY SAY TO YOU AND YOUR LOVED ONES, PLEASE TAKE CARE.

Update: this is a very touching article from the Star-Telegram about how the baseball teams gave tribute to Kyle.

I saw this on the news and my heart sank.  My prayers go out to this family.  The Dad was so strong during the interview.  I really admired his courage and love that he showed while talking about his son.
