Surfer treated for flesh-eating bacteria
A surfer visiting Port Aransas remains in a Victoria hospital after being stricken with the flesh-eating bacteria Vibrio vulnificus.
Though no Vibrio deaths have been reported this year, on average two to three people die annually in Texas from the aggressive infection, according to the Texas Department of State Health Services. Most of those deaths originate from eating raw oysters in summer.
