After swimming and drinking some ocean water due to being taken over by waves, developed nose/throat irritation that developed into sever abdominal cramps, belching within an hour. That night had severe diarrhea. Next two days diarrhea continued and progressively worsened w/fever developing and reaching 103/104. Both my kids and I swam and all 3 got sick. Husband never did. All ate the same things and stayed in same room together.
