2-year-old dies from E. coli O157 in Missouri

The Lawrence County coroner says 2-year-old Sawyer Doss of Monett, MO, died Friday at a hospital in Springfield after testing positive for E. coli.

A Mercy Springfield paediatrician says the strain involved E. coli O157, which is most commonly linked to cattle and under-cooked ground beef.

The Lawrence County Health Department says it is just beginning its investigation.
