Fox 29 Philadelphia reports Gail Edmond claims she suffered from bed bug bites on her arm, wrist, finger, and stomach, while staying at Bally’s Resort and Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Edmond says she isn’t seeking a payout:

“Want money? I’m not hurting. I don’t want money from Bally’s. My main concern here was, I wanted to see exterminators go in the room. I wanted to see them correct the problem,” says Edmond.

The woman went to an emergency room and doctors diagnosed the bites as being from bed bugs.  (We’re told that it is not possible to do this with any certainty, though it’s understandable they might come to this conclusion since the bites apparently appeared while she was staying in the hotel.)  She was given a prescription for something also.

While Fox 29 viewers are probably horrified by the idea of being bitten by bed bugs while staying in a hotel room, the real horror begins if you actually bring bed bugs home.  We really hope that did not happen in this case.

You can watch the video or read the story on Fox 29’s website.
