- A family in New Jersey is anxious about its father, who was hospitalized after going crabbing in Maurice River. She says hours after he went crabbing near the Maurice River on July 2, his right leg began to swell then quickly got worse.

The bacteria that Perez contracted is called Vibrio necrotizing fasciitis.

But the next day, the lower half of his right leg was in severe pain and swelling.

The National Institutes of Health says that while Vibrio bacteria "is one of the more infrequent causes of necrotizing fasciitis", it has a 26 percent mortality rate because it rapidly spreads and it is hard to diagnose. He is now in the ICU at Cooper, the infection spread to all four limbs.

In other words, it's a flesh-eating bacterial infection.

"He is in critical condition", Perez-Dilan told NJ Advance Media. His forearms are black in color, they have blisters, cuts and sores'. "If you see something that's out of the norm, go and get it checked". "It was swelling, it was blistered", Perez-Dilan told WPVI. If he doesn't, they may have to amputate at least three of his limbs.

"We've all been praying and I think our spirituality, our religion, has been allowing us to get through without going into a chaotic mess", Perez-Dilan told CBS.

Doctors have put Perez on antibiotics and are waiting to see if responds.

"He's been praising God nonstop", Perez-Dilan said. She now has a rash on her leg, and her leg [had] painful swelling, ' Perez-Dilan said. It turned out to be Vibrio vulnificus, a bacteria common to warm brackish water that is usually only a concern if you eat contaminated raw shellfish. "He's just happy to have a second chance".

Four out of five of infections happen between May and October, the CDC says, and the bacteria is more likely to infect those with a "compromised immune system". "Be careful. The water, as much as we need water, it can be poisonous". But the New Jersey Health Department says if anyone has open cuts or scrapes, it's best to stay out of the brackish water.
