Two boys who were treated for a bed bug infestation at their local truck bed were found by a paramedic on Wednesday.
The two boys, aged 14 and 17, were taken to hospital after suffering from the infection on the night of May 6.
A spokesperson for West Lakes Health and Primary Care told FourFourtwo that the boys had been at the truck bed for about 15 minutes and they were both feeling sick.
“Both boys were taken by ambulance to West Lakes Hospital, where they are in stable condition and receiving treatment,” the spokesperson said.
“The hospital has a dedicated team who are monitoring the boys closely and will do all they can to ensure their wellbeing.”
The spokesperson said the incident was not being treated as suspicious.
