                                                A man trapped in his wrecked truck survived an attack by up to 300,000 bees searching for their hives after the truck crashed near Auckland. Chris Robinson had developed partial immunity to bee stings since he began beekeeping in 1982.

"The rescuers would have been under more threat than Chris," his wife Laine said yesterday."He was covered in stings all over his body and neck. "Most people would have died from that much venom.

              Even being immune, I don't see how he survived an
    attack like that!    I wonder how well he took care of them,
    since it almost sounds like a revenge attack!    sad.gif

                                                One thing's for sure - it must have really hurt!  sad.gif

Mrs Robinson had to spend 30 minutes removing the stings from her husband's body.

                                                Hmmm , Ouch .
   My Husband once ( who's sometimes not to bright but he looks good and goes with everything I own  wub.gif ) decided to throw rocks at a wasp hive and well I guess the moral of the story is that most people end up in hospital after an attack like that .
Mind you most people learn never to do that sort of thing again . Yet ya  still catch him poking at the odd hive ,  just for fun (damn red neck  rolleyes.gif )
  Mind you I had never heard of an ammunity to bee stings as I thought that after an attack like the one in the story you became more susceptible to bad reactions from bee stings later. huh.gif sort of like a build up of toxins.
