"It can be risky and we don't know what we're getting into when we get in there", Perez-Dilan told WPVI. "You can see it spreading from his feet all the way above his kneecap".
Perez' family took him to the Cooper University Hospital, where he is listed in critical condition as doctors now work to save his four limbs, Fox 29 reported.

"That's why they do use boots - people use boots and covers to protect themselves", Perez-Dilan told WPVI. Mr. Perez has Parkinson's disease, so he is at a greater risk for problems.
