Texas Jr. High Football Player Dies from Ant Bites

A 12-year-old Texas boy has died after apparently suffering a severe allergic reaction to ant bites while
warming up for the second half of a middle school football game. Officials
confirmed Tuesday that Cameron Espinosa died days after being bitten multiple
times by fire ants. Corpus Christi school district spokeswoman Lorette Williams
says the boy used a water bottle to try and remove the ants, but he eventually
fell unconscious last Wednesday. He was taken to a hospital and was hospitalized
in critical condition. The eighth-grader died Monday.
