Yet Another Death of a Child Due to E. coli – This Time Eight-Year-Old Joseph Coning By E. coli Attorney on June 17, 2009 Posted in Legal Cases The Blount Daily Times reports on yet another death caused by E. coli O157:H7 and Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS) – this time it is eight-year-old Joseph Coning. I received an email tonight from his devastated family. Just a few weeks ago, seven-year-old Abby Fenstermaker died of E. coli O157:H7 and HUS in Ohio. I will be meeting with yet another anguished family on Father’s Day. When will it stop?
