Boy, 14, contracts brain-eating amoeba infection after swimming in Minnesota lake

Hunter Boutain 1.jpg 
A Minnesota child has become critically ill with a rare brain infection caused by a freshwater amoeba after swimming in Pope County?s Lake Minnewaska, the Minnesota Department of Health announced Tuesday evening.

Health officials believe the child developed a rare form of meningitis known as primary amebic meningoencephalitis (PAM), which is caused by an amoeba known as Naegleria fowleri that is associated with warm, freshwater areas. The amoeba causes a severe brain infection that is almost always fatal. It infects humans by entering the body through the nose ? typically while swimming ? and cannot be contracted through drinking contaminated water.

State officials did not identify the child, but a family-created CaringBridge site identified him late Tuesday as Hunter Boutain of Alexandria, Minn., and said he is being treated for the infection at University of Minnesota Medical Center in Minneapolis.

Information posted by Hunter?s uncle, Bryan Boutain, Tuesday

Hunter Boutain was listed in critical condition Wednesday after contracting a rare and often deadly brain infection known as primary amebic meningoencephalitis.
