A popular Perth swimming spot has been immediately and indefinitely closed after a routine water sampling revealed a terrifying find.
The Parks and Wildlife Service of Western Australia announced the closure of Serpentine Falls from today onwards after it found Naegleria Fowleri bacteria in the water, which is also referred to as “brain-eating amoeba”.
