Paranormal investigator Sara Harris died from a lung infection she contracted during an investigation.

It is believed that the infection was the result of inhaling bat or rat droppings stirred up at a residence she had been investigating with her husband. While doctors did what they could her condition deteriorated to the point where her lungs were unable to support her and she died after a month fighting the illness. The tragic incident highlights the unexpected dangers inherent in paranormal investigation, especially at old or abandoned locations.

"I am reaching out to the paranormal community for prayers and also so you can protect yourself against the things we can not see that are living and breathing in the air we breath," her husband Shane said in a statement. "Please be careful, as I don’t want this to happen to you."

"Mrs Harris’ untimely demise reminds us all of the real-world dangers of investigating."

Bad journalism. It grabs people's attention and reels them in. Thousands of articles like this are posted every day.

I have seen incidents like this before about archeologists. An archeologist died from an infection after inhaling bad air microbes at a discovery in 2006 Egypt. I think it is sound advice to wear protective masks or breathing apparatus when investigating areas of extreme age or antiquity.

Hanta Virus? That is the first thing I wondered. But she wasn't in the area commonly associated with the Hanta Virus.
