Woman Dies of Flesh-Eating Bacteria After Sex Game Goes Wrong
Note that in the original headline of this piece, the woman is referred to as a ‘Mom,’ which I (Link): find a little annoying.
A young mom died from a rare flesh-eating disease after being injured during a sex game with her boyfriend.
Care assistant Katie Widdowson told medics she had hurt her wrist while being restrained in bed.
But hospital doctors diagnosed a simple sprain and sent her home – missing warning signs that it was something far more serious.
The next day, 24-year-old Katie, from Castle Vale, Birmingham was rushed back to hospital – and had a heart attack while in the ambulance.
The much-loved young mom was found to have the flesh-eating bug Necrotising Fasciitis, and died from the bacterial infection shortly afterwards.
