Aimee Copeland: Flesh Eating Bacteria Tragedy


this is usually one of the most tragic
about one of the saddest stories that we’ve covered on to write you during my
time here i’m referring to any copeland she’s the university of west georgia
student she was on a kayaking trip in carrollton
georgia are just a short time ago last week as she was playing in the water un at
one point he is the homemade zip line this is something that i’m sure many of
you have used in the past underlying snapped and it cut through her calf uh… she went to the doctor
interpreting this from an article from the house in the post she receives stitches and left the
hospital but in the following day is repeated
visits to the doctor didn’t help the pain by friday in new york physician had
diagnosed her with necrotizing fashion i guess uh… an infection from a rare
flesh-eating bacteria that’s obviously the name that i’m sure
you’re more familiar with um… it’s not something that we here at
sweat about in the u_s_ i think fully it’s extremely rare however
unfortunately amy copeland was struck by flesh-eating bacteria from the wound
that she suffered from the homemade zip line uh… it says that she was airlifted to
a hospital burn unit in augusta georgia uh… and unfortunately surgeons were
first forced amputate her leg uh… immediately along with tissue from
ur cabinet because of the spreading of the bacteria it said that despite the fact that they
had to take her leg uh… doctors on tuesday said their chances of survival
were slim to none now thankfully there was further news of both earlier today uh… in the morning and further updates
throughout the day as for families that live blogging her medical treatment um… and they say it misses from her
father a indeed hero on his blog today amy as responsive and coherent ashes responding to specific commands a
even selected in music she wanted to listen to unfortunately her blood vessels in your
hands in her remaining four have died and us they will have to be amputated to uh… that’s obviously extremely tragic
she’s lost all of her extremities at this point uh… or at least parts of those
extremities uh… but to give them a little bit of
more positive news you know what positive updates can come out of this uh… there was dot further news it said
driving is not a spectacular day she’s breathing more her own and her body is responding positively she even got emotional today i think
she’s scared uh… now that doesn’t sound like positive news but the fact
that she is coherent enough to have a devotional reaction of what’s going on
is actually considered positive news now uh… despite what was said by the
ducks on tuesday it appears that she’s doing somewhat better than expected
uh… as of right now they don’t know what her chances of surviving are and
now one of the reasons i want to cover this story is because the website has been set up by her family onto facility donations of both the
blood and money uh… is any copeland dot com we’ve got
the information in the description below uh… if you can do anything to assist
her or if you simply want to lend some sort of support are you can do so at that website uh… as i said earlier this simply but
you know a tragic completely one in a million instance this factory exists in nature it’s an
unfortunate fact uh… in our world of the chances of
contracting it from an injury of a sore extremely low uh… but it is happening uh… it’s it’s just the two stream is that you
