Don't Get Drunk And Fall In Polluted Water!

34-year-old Oliver Johnson is dying from a flesh-eating disease after falling into the polluted waters of the Ala Wai Boat Harbor last week. He had been drinking at a bar across the street from his condo before he fell into the harbor early Friday morning. Johnson had cut himself while climbing out and had open wounds on his feet and legs. Over the weekend, his leg started hurting. By Sunday, he had trouble breathing and called for an ambulance. He was later placed on life support! His leg was amputated on Monday. His body also went into Toxic Shock Syndrome. Apparently, he's so swollen up his friends can't even recognize him.
