Oh Shnap! 3rd person treated for flesh-decaying infection in GA
A Cartersville man is facing his sixth surgery Tuesday after contracting the same flesh-decaying bacterial infection as Aimee Copeland.
Bobby Vaughn, 33, is the third person whose infection has come to light in recent weeks in the region.
Vaughn is being treated for necrotitis fasciitis at the same Augusta hospital as Copeland, who nearly died from the infection she contracted after a zip-line injury in Carrollton on May 1. She is improving but remains in critical condition after multiple amputations.
