​Woman Has To Have More Than 400 Bee Stings Removed From Body

A woman in China has had to have more than 400 bee stings removed from her body after she was attacked while working in a field.

The woman, known only by her surname of Huang, was rushed to a local hospital in Suichang county, located in the eastern Chinese province Zhejiang.

According to reports, doctors had to remove the venomous stings in an emergency procedure.

Dr Weng Jianwu, an ER doctor at the hospital, told local media: "When the patient was brought in, we saw packs of bee's stingers covering her head, neck and back.

"She said she was feeling very tired. She also had headaches and struggled to breathe."

The woman, who is a farmer, told journalists she had been working on a field when a swarm of bees suddenly flew at her and attacked her.

Dr Weng advised that anyone attacked by bees should stay calm and avoid running, as the sudden movement could prompt the insects to grow even more aggressive - in turn resulting in potentially more serious injuries.

Mind you, not everyone feels the need to exercise such caution when around bees.

One beekeeper reckons he and his bees have such a strong friendship that they would never sting him - proving his point by allowing up to 60,000 of them to completely cover his head, a feat that's even won him a Guinness World Record.

Woman Unknowingly Has Part Of Her Ear Removed During Nose Job Surgery

The man, who goes by the moniker Nature M.A., holds the Guinness World Record title for the longest time for a person to have their head fully covered in bees (that's 4 hours, 10 minutes and five seconds, by the way).

Nature, from Kerala in India, has always had an affinity with bees, letting them crawl about his face since he was just seven years old.

Even on the odd occasion he does get stung, Nature says it's his own fault, as 'any fault of mine, a bee would never sting me at all'.

He said: "People are often scared about bees because they sting.

"Honeybees are the key insects in society, it is our duty to protect them. Without honeybees, the earth could not sustain us all."

Personally, I'll stick to avoiding swarms of bees for now...
