Yosemite, CA - The Fresno Bee reports a Southern California woman is seeking $3.25 million over the Hantavirus outbreak at Yosemite National Park last year. They say the suit was filed by Cathy Carrillo of Chino, she alleges that she became sick with the virus while staying in Curry Village last June.
In her suit, Carrillo claims that she now has a million dollars in medical bills and suffers from diminished lung capacity and low energy.
