AP: New case linked to illness outbreak at Kansas splash park


GODDARD, Kan. — Health officials have identified another person infected with the bacteria that may have caused an outbreak of illness at a splash park near Wichita.

State and Sedgwick County health investigators said Wednesday in a news release that at least seven people who visited Tanganyika Wildlife Park in Goddard, Kansas, on June 11 have now tested positive for the Shigella bacteria. Investigations are ongoing into other possible linked illnesses.

The Shigella bacteria is spread from person-to-person through exposure to contaminated feces.
