Two girls sue North Myrtle Seaside resort after they are saying they had been bitten by mattress bugs


NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW) – Two women filed a lawsuit against a resort in North Myrtle Beach on Monday alleging they were bitten by bed bugs while on vacation.

Kassidy and Kenzie Elmore, who live in North Carolina, filed the lawsuit against the Avista Resort in Horry County’s 15th District.

The two stayed at the resort with a child from August 1-9 and were bitten by bed bugs according to legal proceedings.

The suit says there were bed bugs in the mattress, sheets, and carpet.

The lawsuit argues that the resort knew or should have known that its rooms were infested with bed bugs, that the resort did not treat the rooms, and that guests were not warned about the insects.

The three were injured and had to see a doctor according to the lawsuit. They also lost wages.

You are asking for an undisclosed amount of damages.
