During the Flint water crisis, 26-year-old Jassmine McBride was diagnosed with Legionnaires’ disease. She survived the outbreak, but years later, her story reveals the long tail of Flint’s tainted water.
FRONTLINE has discovered that total number of deaths related to Legionnaires’ disease in Flint may be much higher than the figure cited by Michigan officials. Our documentary on Flint’s water crisis will premiere on PBS in fall 2019. Sign up for our email newsletter to get alerted when it drops: https://to.pbs.org/2IKIGOm
