A young girl in Texas caught a terrifying disease, Naegleria Fowleri. While she was swimming the amoeba entered her nose and from there headed towards her brain. The creature destroys the brain and is lethal in 97% of cases. It's most commonly found in warm freshwater. However, there have been less than 40 cases in the past decade.
