More people may die from E. coli in Walkerton

There are predictions that more people are going to die from the E. coli outbreak in Walkerton.

Four people, including a baby, have died so far from the town's contaminated drinking water. Health officials say they hope the appearance of new cases has peaked but fear there will be more deaths.

At least three more children are in critical condition in a London hospital. Two are receiving dialysis treatment after suffering total kidney failure.

As many as 700 people in Walkerton have fallen ill and those who haven't are taking a lot of precautions.
