Arizona: Sleeping Baby Killed By Ants

 

A 3 month old baby girl has died in Phoenix, Arizona after being bitten hundreds of times by black ants. The baby girl was left for half an hour while she had a nap, but when the babysitter returned the child was covered with ants.

The child, Autumn White, had "hundreds of ant bites" on her and her throat had swollen. When firefighters arrived at the home the child was not breathing and she was flown to the local hospital in Phoenix, but was pronounced dead.

The caregiver was so distraught over the incident that she too was taken into an emergency room for treatment. Officials say that the child apparently died due to an allergic reaction from the ant bites.

  You would think...  
 
that the baby would cry from the bites.... I think something is wrong here. I bet the babysitter just let the baby cry thinking she was just crying for the hell of it....

  sleep pain threshold is fairly high.  
 
There is a possibility that the child didn't wake up.. the child is said in the article to have died from an allergic reaction.. which could have swollen and caused the throat to close up and not allow it to cry if it ever woke up.

I wonder where the baby was sleeping, and what it was sleeping in to cause the ants to swarm over it so quickly.
