91-year-old city man Falls Victim to West Nile Virus

91 year old Lester Boggs whose lackadaisical attitude towards using insect repellent, eventually proved to be the cause of his death// when he apparently exposed himself to the West Nile virus.

Mary Boggs, 85, reported that her husband had felt weak and rested in bed for three days before she called an ambulance when he collapsed at home in early August.

He was hospitalized for three weeks and two days. She said that a blood test conducted when he was first admitted to St. John's came back positive fo
