A 12-year-old girl who complained of muscle aches in her leg after a day at the beach was diagnosed with flesh-eating bacteria, a life-threatening infection that carries slim odds of survival.

Brown said her family arrived in Destin on June 7, but were unable to swim in the ocean until a few days later due to bad weather. Two days later, they were finally about to hit the beach.

The girl's mother said her daughter went to bed feeling just fine on Sunday night but woke up on Monday with horrific pain in her leg. By the time Kylei's family returned to their home in IN, the 12-year-old girl's leg had swollen and she was running a fever.

"It's just so hard seeing friends and family on the beach and having fun, because we were there doing the same thing and I nearly lost her", she said. When a blood clot was ruled out, doctors realized they were dealing with Necrotizing Fasciitis, also known as flesh-eating bacteria. Then her leg began to swell, and her body went into septic shock. So far she's had three surgeries. She improved some and we were able to leave PICU and to a regular room and floor. "And doing that, they were trying to save her leg and save her because the infection was moving so rapidly", Brown told WKRG.

According to Brown, her daughter's condition worsened the next day and she needed four different antibiotics to fight the infection.

Kylei spent about a week in the hospital and was sent home, where she is now recovering.

They then determined that Kylei had necrotizing fasciitis - the decaying of soft tissue, which occurs after bacteria enters the body and attacks the skin and tissue. Rapid antibiotic treatment and surgery to remove the infection are crucial in treatment. The disease kills 1 in 3 people who develop it, per the Indianapolis Star. "So when we left the doctors office after hearing that I started freaking out", she recalls.

A mother says her daughter contracted a deadly bacterial infection while the family vacationed on a popular Florida beach.

"We will have numerous doctors visits, physical therapy and blood work to continue, but all that matters is my girl is ALIVE", Brown wrote, in part.

"Everything started going downhill quickly because, to sum things up, she had contracted a bacteria somehow that had already turned into an infection", Brown wrote on Facebook. "It is critical to know about the signs and symptoms of this disease and quickly to treatment", concluded the woman.

Meanwhile, officials with the Florida Department of Health issued a statement about the reported incident. However, Florida health officials do encourage residents and tourists to check the Florida Healthy Beaches Program to ensure water quality before heading out.
