SCARY: Third case of flesh-eating disease diagnosed in Ga. | www.wsbtv.com
REPORT: There is now a third case of the flesh-eating bacteria in Georgia.
Robert Vaughn, 32, of Cartersville said he is not sure how he got the infection, but on May 3, the landscape business owner had just finished a project, and when he got back to the office.
"Just godawful pain in my groin area. It's hard to walk, hard to sit down, it just hurt, hurt all in my back," Vaughn said.
His business partner, Justin Troup, was with him and told Channel 2 Action News, Vaughn just got violently ill.
"He began to get sick, throwing up for about three minutes and had to go lay down. The next thing I know he's in the hospital, and he's been there ever since," Troup said.
That was May 4.
