Weird news - Tattoo, and then contamination leads to death

Sometimes death can come in circumstances that seem weird. A person dies in a situation where so many others see no impact; these circumstances making the entire situation seem so weird. Consider the below case. When somebody gets a tattoo, it is essentially a case involving a needle piercing the human body many times, and like any other wound, it needs some treatment and some days rest before the person gets healed. Now, even when somebody gets a wound, just because they are exposing their skin to pathogens or germs, does not mean that they will get infected.
In the below case, the person got a tattoo and would have been advised to ensure that it is cleaned and disinfected on a regular basis until the wound is fully healed. And like many other people, the person would have done so for a few days until he decided to disregard any such advice and decided to go for a swim in the ocean water. Ocean water contains many bacteria, and even though people go for swims on a regular basis and many of them may be having some open wounds, in this case, the person got infected, and in such a serious way that complications set in and he died in a matter of days (with high additional risk factors because of regular alcohol consumption that had caused weakness in the liver). (Link to article):
ive days after getting his tattoo, the man decided to go for a swim in the Gulf of Mexico. Just three days after that, he was admitted to Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas with severe pain in both of his legs and feet. His symptoms included a fever, chills and redness around his tattoo and elsewhere on his legs. "A lot of our patients, when they come to our institution, come in sick -- and he was certainly among the sicker of the patients that we've had come in," said Dr. Nicholas Hendren, an internal medicine resident at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and lead author of the report. "He said he had a lot of pain in [his right leg]. That, of course, drew our attention right away. "Within a few hours, things had progressed pretty quickly," he said. "There's darkening skin changes, more bruising, more discoloration, what we call bullae -- or mounds of fluid that were starting to collect in his legs -- which, of course, is very alarming to anyone, as it was to us. . 
Now, the warnings would have been there, but so many people would be disregarding the warnings and yet nothing happening. It was just unlucky in the case of this person that the infection took such a serious turn.
