    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    A 65-year-old man is recovering from a bee attack that left him with more than 1200 stings and his body still bruised two weeks later.

    Lamar LaCaze, from Texas in the United States, thought he was going to die during the August 31 attack as he was mowing a field.

    He managed to get off a tractor and used his mobile phone to call his son for help.

    It is believed the bees had been living in an old water heater in the field.

    His son, Trey LaCaze told the San Marcos Daily Record that when he reached his father, it "looked like a beehive on his head." Emergency room staff pulled more than 1200 stingers from his body.

    Bees had made their way into his ears, nose and mouth. [/p]

    Holy crap. That's all I have to say.

    Poor guy. Wish for the best in his recovery.

    Good thing he actually HAD a cell phone on him. How often does a farmer keep a phone on him, especially when doing field work?

    He obviously had resistance to bug type Pokemon [​IMG]

    Most people wouldn't survive even a much smaller number of stings. 1200? Dude [​IMG]

    He's like an older Wilford Brimley. Those poor bees, he killed 1200 of them, that's quite a feat.

    Oh you should also give the Spoiler with the pic in it a title saying it's the pic.
    It kinda creeped me out when I opened the spoiler.
    I feel bad for the guy.
    Hopes he fully recovers soon.
