Deadly Legionnaires' outbreak at Atlanta hotel a "nationwide problem," attorney says
A widespread outbreak of Legionnaires' disease has killed one person and sickened possibly dozens of others who were all guests at the Sheraton Atlanta Hotel. The hotel evacuated all its guests on July 15 and remains closed as of press time.
By the time guests were evacuated in mid-July, 49-year-old Cameo Garrett was already dead. An autopsy showed she had coronary issues and Legionnaires' disease. Garrett went to a conference at the Sheraton a week before she died - just like Germany Greer who said he became so sick at one point he didn't even know his own name.
