Minnesota teen's death was not caused by rare water amoeba


An Alexandria teen who died last month after swimming in Lake Minnewaska was not infected with a deadly lake amoeba after all, according to confirmatory tests by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Hunter Boutain died from bacterial meningitis, not from contact with the rare but deadly Naegleria fowleri amoeba, the Minnesota Department of Health reported Monday.
