VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. – A Volusia County couple were coughing, wheezing and barely able to breathe after setting off multiple bug bombs inside their home.

A man who lives at the Oak Hill residence called 911 shortly after 10 p.m. Thursday saying that he and his wife were experiencing respiratory issues.

“I can’t breathe and neither can my wife,” the man says between coughs and gasps.

During the five-minute 911 call, the operator urged the man to get himself and his wife outside of the home to wait for first responders.

“We tried to bomb the place of insects,” the man says.
