Redondo Beach Man Released From Hospital After 600 Bee Stings
After being stung by what officials estimate to be thousands of bees, a 95-year-old man has been treated at the hospital and released, reports NBC Los Angeles. The Redondo Beach man, whose name hasn't been released, was apparently walking past an apartment building in the 1700 block of Ruxton Lane yesterday afternoon where fumigators were trying to remove the bees' hive from the roof. The angry bees swarmed the innocent man and attacked, leaving him with about 600 stings.
According to L.A. Now, the man's recovery speaks volumes about his fighting spirit:
"He literally got stung by thousands of bees," Sgt. Phil Keenan of the Redondo Beach Police Department told The Times. "Most men would have died, but he's taking it in stride."
