Local River Leaves Stafford Man with Flesh Eating Bacteria

A word of caution from a local infectious disease specialist about going swimming in the Potomac River or other local waterways, especially after days of heavy rain.
A Stafford man is getting a skin graft after he picked up a vibrio bacteria, that's acted like a flesh eating virus. He scraped his knee on a board off a dock in an inlet in the Potomac and got sick later that day. Doctors say if you're going swimming make sure you don't have any cuts or open sores on your body.
