“10 month old baby suffered severe diarrheoa and high temperature…”

[ezcol_1third]c2d9e183a367a32216f2683adab1027f_GrandCettiaMARHR04[/ezcol_1third] [ezcol_1third]Mr V travelled to the Grand Cettia Hotel in Marmaris, Turkey in September 2014. Mr V was accompanied by his wife and two children, the holiday was meant to be a belated honeymoon for the couple who recently married. Around 1 week in to the holiday Mr V’s baby of only 10 months started suffering with severe diarrhoea and a high temperature. Due to her age this was a great concern and she was rushed to see the hotel doctor, where she was placed on an IV drip and given rehydration sachets to avoid being dehydrated even further.[/ezcol_1third] [ezcol_1third_end]This came at a cost of £75, and a diagnosis was made of gastroenteritis. To add to the families troubles, Mr V himself came down with the symptom’s as well as his other daughter. On return to the UK the pair visited the UK where a stool sample was taken. The results were positive for cryptosporidium, resulting in Mr V taking a week off from work. [/ezcol_1third_end]
