From all of the posts I've read you all seem to be very kind People there in Lousiana. I know what I am about to ask is a very odd request, but I seriously need someones help.
I have a very sick little boy on my hands. He was taken to 1 of 6 of the Holly Beaches. The adult with him read but disreguarded the Warning/ Advisory sign on the Beach. When he returned home I had to take him to the ER that was 7-13 he is still very ill.
(The ER doctor said I NEED to know what that sign says)
I have obtained Data from the Beach Monitoring Program- All of the Waters At 1-6 Holly Beaches are out of compliance, All are still under advisory, Swimming is still not Advised. Along with the Data I requested a photo of the Warning/Advisory sign. I did recieve one.
I am including two photos-one of my child in the water(he is the black dot) and the photo of the sign I was sent from the Beach Monitoring Program which was clearly not taken on the same beach. My son says that is NOT the sign he read but the color and wording are similar. He says the sign he read was diamond shaped it was blue and the words were white but he thinks it was a solid sign it did not fold in two.(He's not certian) He was excited to swim.
I need a photo of THAT sign. I need to know which of the 6 Holly Beaches it is located. The adult says it was at the end of Hway 27?
My son's description of the area and beach was this:
The place they parked was passed "the sign", to his left there were houses on stilts, in front of them were two buildings with different flags on top maybe 5 or 6 on each building, the beach was very very dirty, there was no grass and out in the water there were two white poles with distance between them with chicken necks attached to a long string.(Lol that's what he said)
All I know is that he said he did swallow water he was in it for 2 hours or more.
I would be happy to share all of the information I have obtained. To me, someone not native to the area, I personally feel it is a little alarming.
I am hoping there is somebody out there that would be willing to take a picture of that sign. Or all of the advisory signs on Holly Beach if they are not certian.
I do not know how to help my son if I do not have all of the information I need. Thank-You for your time.
