Man Survives Attack By Swarm Of Bees

REDONDO BEACH, Calif., Aug. 25 (UPI) — A 95-year-old man in Southern California survived an attack by bees that stung him hundreds of times Wednesday, authorities said.

Police said an exterminator was trying to remove the bees, believed to be Africanized honeybees, from an apartment in Redondo Beach, the Los Angeles Times reported. That apparently upset the bees and led to the attack.

“He literally got stung by thousands of bees,” Sgt. Phil Keenan told the Times. “Most men would have died, but he’s taking it in stride.”

The man, whose name was not released, was expected to be discharged from a hospital without an overnight stay, the newspaper said.
