Mass. mom recalls daughter’s EEE death


A FIRSTHAND EXPERIENCE WITH THIS
VIRUS. JOSH: THAT’S RIGHT. THERE HAVE BEEN 210 POSITIVE
MOSQUITO SAMPLES RECOVERED FROM
DENSE WOODS AND SWAMPS LIKE
THESE HERE. SO FAR, NO HUMAN OR ANIMAL CASES
AERIAL SPRAYING THEY’RE DOING
WILL KEEP IT THAT WAY.>>I THINK IT’S GREAT BECAUSE
IT’S TERRIFYING FOR THE KIDS TO

>>IT’S SOMETHING YOU HAVE TO
TAKE PRECAUTIONS ABOUT, BUT I
WOULD BE HESITANT ABOUT ALL THE CHEMICALS THEY’RE SPRAYING. JOSH: THE REAL CONCERN IS PARKS
AT DUSK IN SOUTH ERRON
MASSACHUSETTS IN THE AREAS MOST
SUSCEPTIBLE TO THE SPREAD OF
POTENTIALLY DEADLY TRIPLE E. NOT EVERYONE IS ONBOARD WITH
AERIAL SPRAYING. THE STATE GOT STARTED LAST
NIGHT, AT THAT TIMING MORE THAN
HALF OF THE 22 HIGHEST RISK
COMMUNITIES.>>IT IS THE ONLY WAY TO
EFFECTIVELY KILL THE ADULT
FEMALE MOSQUITOES. JOSH: KIMBERLY’S DAUGHTER DIED
IN 2005 OF TRIPLE E AFTER SHE
WAS BITTEN BY A MOSQUITO.>>WE WERE OFF TO PICK FLORAL
ANGMENTS AND JUST LESS THAN A
WEEK, SHE WAS GONE BECAUSE THE
BITE OF AN INFECTED MOSQUITO. JOSH: CERTAIN POCKETS ARE
AVOIDED SUCH AS THE TWIN LAKES
IN HALIFAX. THE CITY OF BROCKTON. EVERY MOSQUITO BUT AS ABANDONED
POOLS AND BUCKETS OF STANDING
WATER, THIS IS A HELP.>>TO TAKE IT SERIOUSLY BECAUSE,
YOU KNOW? WE NEVER THOUGHT IT WOULD HAPPEN
TO US, AND IT HAPPENED. JOSH: KIMBERLY KING WORRIES THEY
MAY HAVE WAITED TOO LONG TO STOP
THE COMPLETE SPREAD OF TRIPLE E
AND JUST BECAUSE THERE IS AERIAL
SPRAYING GOING ON DOESN’T MEAN
YOURSELF OR YOUR KIDS. LIVE

My mom used to babysit Adreanna. My mom and dad say that that the funeral was awful. I've been to her grave before. I was too little to underunderstand death. I feel so bad for Kim. Rest in peace Adrianna.
