Officials: Woman may have got anthrax from drum
STRAFFORD, N.H. -- Investigators are trying to determine if a woman who took part in an African drumming circle got anthrax from her drum.
The woman from Strafford, New Hampshire got sick earlier in December, and is now in critical condition in the hospital.
State officials believe she may have breathed in anthrax spores, which can occur naturally in animal hides. Officials are asking anyone who attended drumming events at the Waysmeet Center between October and December to contact them.
