A 50-year-old man in Texas, Brian Parrott, is fighting for his life after contracting an unidentified flesh-eating bacteria while at a local beach. Doctors have not fully identified the bacteria, but there have been previous cases of it in recent years.  They believe it to be vibrio, a common flesh-eating bacteria that lives in coastal waters and can infect people through open wounds.
