A schoolgirl has lost both her feet after a severe bout of mystery meningitis – which could have developed from SWIMMING in the sea.
Nine-year-old Brogan-Lei Partridge first complained of feeling unwell during her parents’ honeymoon in Cornwall back in June 2016.
Parents Aimee, 27, and Craig, 31, initially thought she had an infection after she began vomiting during the holiday, which took place only days after her parents’ wedding.
But after returning to the family home in Bartley Green, Birmingham, her parents rushed her to A&E after realising that something wasn’t right.
She quickly developed a terrible rash across her legs as doctor’s diagnosed Brogan with meningococcal meningitis and septicaemia.
