Ants eat away woman's eye in hospital
A woman receiving treatment for diabetes at a state-run hospital lost one of her eyes after ants nibbled away at it, officials said on Tuesday.
The patient recovering from a post-surgery infection shrieked for help as the ants attacked her on Sunday night, but nurses told her it was normal to feel pain from the infection.
On Monday, the patient's family saw a gaping hole with swarming ants in it when they lifted the bandage on her left eye.
"It's not uncommon for ants to attack diabetic patients. We have set up a committee to investigate the unfortunate incident,"
