(WASHINGTON EXAMINER) An Air Force veteran battling cancer was bitten more than 100 times by ants days before he died at a Veterans Affairs hospital in Georgia, according to his daughter.
Laquna Ross found her father, Joel Marrable, covered in swollen bite marks while visiting him at the Eagle's Nest Community Living Center in Atlanta last week.
"When I took his hand out, it was really swollen, and he flinched," she told the New York Daily News. "I was really worried and asked a staffer if she could come take a look."

The staffer told Ross that "it's getting better ... you know ... from the ants."
