Rare strain takes life of 4-year-old; leaves mother with health problems
As if going through one tragedy isn’t hard enough, the Odens family is struggling through two.
Eric and Karen Odens’ little girl, Sophia, got sick with flu-like symptoms on Feb. 5. The following morning, the Pelican Rapids couple brought their daughter to the hospital in Detroit Lakes because the symptoms had gone from bad to worse.
A few days later, Sophia died of E. coli bacteria infection.
