Man taken to hospital after being attacked by bees in Lampang

A 60-year-old man has been taken to hospital after he was attacked by bees in Lampang yesterday, June 16.

The bee attack occurred in Nam Cho, Mae Tha District at around 11:30 p.m.

The unnamed man attempted to harvest a wild beehive around 200 meters from the road by himself when the beehive broke open and the bees attacked him. He subsequently staggered to the road and managed to wave down help.

Those attempting to help him, along with emergency services workers who attended the scene were also attacked by bees but not sufficiently enough to require medical attention.

The man was treated with water to the stings at the scene before being transported to Mae Tha District Hospital.
