ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (WFLA) – A man from Tampa Bay, Florida, has survived an infection of flesh-eating bacteria that began killing the tissue in his leg.

“What you see now, you see not just a scar, but the beauty of the aftermath,” said Donnie Adams, who attributed his survival to doctors and the power of meditation and prayer. “I would’ve never imagined that a human bite would turn into something so horrific as a flesh-eating bacteria.”

Adams was at a family event in February when things got sour between two family members. He tried to get between them but ended up getting bit. He went to the hospital for a tetanus shot and antibiotics.

“By the third day, my leg was very sore. I couldn’t walk, it was very warm and very painful,” said Adams.

His infection worsening, Adams was rushed to the ER at HCA Florida Pasadena Hospital in St. Petersburg.

“I looked at him and I said to him that I need to take you to the operating room,” recalled Fritz Brink, an osteopathic physician at HCA Florida.

That is so messed up. Flesh Eating Bacteria is one of my nightmares and to get it because someone bit you is way too Walking Dead for my taste. Scary stuff!
