TAMPA, Fl. (WFLA) – A Citrus County, Florida man is recovering from flesh-eating bacteria that attacked his buttocks.

Mike O’Grady said his medical nightmare started with a happy trip to St. George Island up in Apalachicola with his wife.

“Beautiful time. We had a great time. We went into the water. The water is warm which the Gulf is,” said O’Grady.

Not long after that, he noticed what resembled a boil on his backside.

“It got worse as every day went by, but I was being a man. I decided it’s going to be ok. I don’t want anyone to go looking. I’ll be fine,” said O’Grady.
