We're just glad he survived!
A man in Wichita Falls, Texas was mowing the lawn near a tennis center when a swarm of Africanized honey bees began attacking him!
They actually stung him over ONE THOUSAND TIMES before turning on his two co-workers to chase them!
The honey bees are also known as killer bees because of their ability to kill big animals and sometimes even people. It is actually their venom that is the most dangerous - especially when one is being stung by hundreds of them repeatedly.
The attack happened this past Thursday at about 10am, and it's believed that the roar and vibration of the worker's lawnmower was what initially set the bees on the defensive.
Bee keeper John Bouchard got a closer look at the hive after the scary incident and found that it was about the size of a basketball and could probably hold about 50,000 bees. A rather large hive that he believes is the biggest he's seen all year.
The unknown survivor of the massive bee attack is being treated at a local hospital for the venomous stings, and we hope he has a full recovery! Two of his co-workers were also treated for bee stings, but they are believed to be in good condition.
It's scary to even think about something like this — let alone experience it!!!
