In the U.S., the two boys died from a rare fatal disease that causes aquatic amoeba.

It turned out that the dead children - seven and nine years - went swimming in the water park in the city of Tulsa Oklahoma.

It is assumed that there they were exposed to an amoeba Naegleria, which can cause life-threatening disease - amoebic meningoencephalitis.

Infection occurs when the amoeba enters the water containing the pathogen in the upper airway during bathing or other activities in the water. Later amoebae migrate from the nasal cavity in a traumatic brain cavity via the olfactory nerve. The incubation period - from 1 to 14 days.

For the prevention of three city pools where swimming boys, were closed for inspection, reports NEWS.ru.
