“We were attacked by a swarm of bees on the 9 Arch Bridge in Elle, Sri Lanka. Before visiting this destination, we had never heard of the bee hives under the bridge. There were not just 1, but 4 beehives under the arches. The bees were giant honeybeeswhich are twice the size of a normal bee”, they recounted in the video.
In turn, they added that when they were attacked, they ran to the opposite side of the bridge, and they were separated for 30 minutes without any communication. “We were rushed to the hospital because I (Dan) was stung more than 50 times and Leanne more than 30”.
In the video, the man explained that neither of us is allergic to beesbut that in the same way they were taken to a nearby hospital to monitor their evolution.
“After the incident, we spoke to the locals, and they told us that bee attacks are common on this bridge, especially when there are drones. luckily right away they lit a fire to scare away the insects. This could have ended very differently if we were.”, they concluded in the description of the video.
This species of bees stands out for its defensive behaviorThey are very aggressive when they feel threatened and react together so quickly that they can catch their victims up to 400 meters away from their swarm.
