LORDSBURG, N.M. (AP) – U.S. Border Patrol agents say a man among hundreds of migrants detained in New Mexico in recent days has been diagnosed as having been infected with flesh-eating bacteria.

The man was transported to a hospital after telling an agent that he had a growing rash on his leg.

Officials said in a statement Friday the unidentified migrant will require extensive treatment.

The bacteria usually gets into the body through a minor cut or scrape and can cause a serious infection that can destroy muscle, skin and other tissue. READ MORE
