The death of an English tourist due to Legionnaire’s disease last year
at the Epic hotel was likely caused by a faulty water system, according
to a report by Miami-Dade Health Department officials. The department
detected the bacteria that causes the disease, which also infected nine
others at the hotel, when they tested water samples at the 411-room
hotel on Biscayne Boulevard. “A causal relationship is likely because of
the extent of the contamination found at the hotel.” the report said. [Sun
