    Beaches in Florida along the Gulf Coast are no longer letting people swim after finding high levels of toxic and fecal bacteria in the water.

    The two beaches in Walton County have a “no swim” advisory, while six beaches in Okaloosa County still allow swimming but have a “health advisory” after discovering elevated levels of the enterococci bacteria which is less likely to die off in salt water.

    The Florida Health Department said all other beaches along the Panhandle have “satisfactory” water quality.

    The enterococci bacteria are normally found within the intestinal tract of human and animals, and indicate fecal pollution from stormwater, pets and human sewage.

    High concentrations of the bacteria, if ingested while swimming, or entering the skin through an open cut, can cause human disease, infections or rashes.

    According to Medscape, infections commonly caused by the bacteria are: “urinary tract infection (UTIs), endocarditis, bacteremia, catheter-related infections, wound infections, and intra-abdominal and pelvic infections.”

    Day at the beach leaves Texas man with flesh-eating bacteria

    A trip to the beach over Father's Day weekend left a Texas man fighting an infection from flesh-eating bacteria.

    Adrian Ruiz's family said they were visiting a beach in Port Aransas, on the Gulf of Mexico, when he picked up the "very aggressive" bacteria called vibrio, according to a crowd-funding page set up on YouCaring.com.

    "Within a few hours after being in the water he was sick and is now battling this horrible bacteria which has caused a nasty, huge open sore wound on his right leg," his family writes on the page.

    Vibrio bacteria live naturally in certain coastal waters and are present in higher concentrations between May and October when water temperatures are warmer, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.


    Last week, another Texas man -- 50-year-old Brian Parrott -- had to have his leg amputated after contracting an unidentified flesh-eating bacteria, suspected to be vibrio, CBS affiliate KHOU reports. After spending at least two hours in the water at a Galveston beach with his family, Parrott began vomiting and noticed sores on his legs a couple days later.
