Man Stung By Hundreds Of Bees - Hospitalized
Advertisements [?]

CAPE CORAL, Fla. -- A Cape Coral man is in intensive care after he was attacked by a swarm of bees and was stung hundreds of times.

Authorities said 47-year-old Jeffrey Brauner was attempting to remove a three-foot tall by three-foot wide bee hive when he was attacked Monday morning.

Rescue officials found Brauner sitting down trying to protect his face and upper torso from the swarm of bees. It's estimated as many as 50,000 bees were in the hive.

Firefighters froze the bees with carbon dioxide extinguishers and then sprayed them off Brauner's body with water from a fire hose.

A trapper was called in and removed the hive.
