The daughter of a 76-year-old Florida nursing home resident discovered live maggots in his eye socket, the Sun Sentinal reported.

John Stumpp, who lost an eye to cancer, was under the care of the Gainsville nursing home when his eye socket became infected and his daughter, Patrice Ripley, found maggots living in the socket.

“It's absolutely inexcusable," Ripley said. "Quite frankly, I'm angry."

The state is investigating the matter.

Maxcine Darville, the executive in control of the nursing home, could not be reached for comment.
