LABELLE, FL - A Florida boy battling a brain-eating illness is now receiving the same experimental treatment used to help Benton 12-year-old Kali Hardig.
Zachary Reyna is battling the very rare Primary Amoebic Meningoencephalitis. He contracted the infection while knee boarding in warm, fresh water with friends outside his LaBelle home.
Right now Zachary is in the ICU at a Miami hospital. If he survives, he'd be the fourth person in American to combat the illness.
Zachary's family told Fox News he received the same treatment as Hardig.
That included giving Kali an anti-fungal medicine, antibiotics and a new experimental anti-amoeba drug, according to WBBH-TV.
When they checked Kali's spinal fluid, they found no presence of the amoeba. She has been moved out of the intensive care unit and is listed in fair condition, according to FoxNews.com.
