Default Bot Flies

Story about a guy who had a bot fly lay a few eggs in his head.

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/19833356/

I remember when I was in the military, I met some guy who was sent to South America to lay a bunch of concrete for roads and a school they were building and he had the misfortune of a bot fly laying an egg in his forehead. I remember thinking yeah right this dude is full of it, but I looked it up on the net and it seems to happen to travelers often when they sleep.
