About two months after making landfall in Texas, Hurricane Harvey has claimed another victim, a 31-year-old man died last week after being diagnosed with a rare flesh-eating bacterial infection known as necrotizing fasciitis.

The man has been identified as Josue Zurita, and he was helping repair several homes damaged by flooding from Hurricane Harvey. Zurita went to the hospital on October 10th with a seriously infected wound on his upper left arm and was diagnosed with necrotizing fasciitis, according to the Galveston County Health District.

In an obituary on the Galveston-based Carnes Brothers Funeral Home's website, Zurita was called a "loving father and hard-working carpenter" who moved to the United States from Mexico to help his family and "remained to help with the rebuilding after hurricane Harvey."

His death follows that of Nancy Reed, a 77-year-old Houston-area woman who died in September from necrotizing fasciitis related to Harvey floodwaters.
