Kali Hardig has defied medical odds and is being discharged today from Arkansas Children's Hospital in Little Rock.
The 12-year-old Benton girl is reported to be the third person in the world to survive the brain-eating amoeba that caused her to become ill July 19 following an outing at a Little Rock water park.
The condition she suffered is known as primary amoebic memingoencephalitis. A then-experimental drug is credited with killing the amoeba.
Kali's miraculous recovery is being celebrated locally with a parade involving two schools in the Benton district.
