CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas -- A 13-year-old south Texas boy is on life support after he was bitten by ants on a football field.

The principal at a middle school in Corpus Christi said Cameron Espinosa was in the middle of a halftime huddle Wednesday night when he started screaming.

The teen had a severe allergic reaction after being bitten on the stomach and legs by ants.
