Man attacked by bees caught on camera
A man was attacked by a swarm of bees Sunday when he tried to remove a massive hive from a tree in Brevard County on Martin Road in Rockledge. An eyewitness captured the attack on camera.
Eyewitnesses said the man was an amateur and did not wear the correct protective clothing before trying to remove the hive.
“He was not well prepared. [He] had a towel over his face and scuba gear and mask. The bees are all over his face and he starts panicking and runs down Martin Road here,” eyewitness Chris Maffucci said.
The man was taken to Wuesthoff Hospital, where he was treated for stings to the face.
A professional was called to the scene to remove the beehive.
