Still, the New Jersey Department of Health recommends anyone with open cuts or scrapes stay out of salty water.
Angel Perez, 60, of Millville, Jersey, was catching crabs last week (left and right) off the Maurice River.
For Perez, the infection spread quickly - taking just hours for his limbs to swell and become discolored.
The man, Angel Perez, is now being treated by doctors.
If he doesn't, they may have to amputate all of his limbs.
Perez' daughter, Dilena Perez-Dilan, told NJ.com that her father's condition is due to infection from Vibrio vulnificus, a type of flesh-eating bacteria. Doctors at Cooper University Hospital are treating him with antibiotics and trying to save his life. The potentially fatal condition can be caused by several types of bacteria, striking 1,000 people in the United States each year. The risky bacteria can reportedly enter the body through the tiniest cut or scratch, potentially causing a life-threatening medical emergency.
One specific form of Vibrio bacteria, Vibrio vulnificus, is especially risky.
Perez had to have a leg surgically drained as an infectious disease doctor investigated the cause of the infection.
Vibrio is more commonly a risk for people wading through floodwaters. The vast majority of 80,000 or so Vibrio cases in the USA each year come from ingesting undercooked seafood. Estimates suggest 52,000 of those cases are likely the result of eating contaminated food, especially raw seafood.
Vibriosis is a human infection caused by the Vibrio bacteria, which lives in coastal waters.
His family said Perez's immune system was already compromised by Parkinson's Disease. But the bacteria usually causes infection at the site of a cut or wound regardless. "The sores started showing up on his legs and he started hallucinating".
If any of these symptoms are present after a wound appears, or if you have fever, chills, or vomiting, the CDC advises seeing a doctor for treatment immediately.
Perez-Dilan said her father is not breathing well but on his own and is only able to slightly move his right arm - yet is in good spirits.
