CORPUS CHRISTI, TX (KVEO NEWS CENTER 23) — ***This story aired on September 9, 2013.***
A 13 year-old boy from Corpus Christi is on life support after he was bitten by ants on a football field.
The principal at Haas Middle School says the boy was in the middle of a halftime huddle when he started screaming.
The young teen had a severe allergic reaction after he was bitten on the stomach and legs by ants. The reaction was so severe he lost consciousness twice before medics could get to the scene.
School officials say the field will not be used again until the school district hires someone to treat it.
