13,000 Volts, Bees Can't Keep Tree Trimmer Down

//

After a 13,000-volt shock and 1,800 bee stings (separate incidents), a New Mexico arborist just wants to get back to work. Firefighters had to be called in when Craig Benavidez hit a power line — knocking him out — while cutting tree branches. He planned to go back on the job later in the week. The incident pales compared to the time he was stung by a swarm of Africanized bees, Benavidez told KVIA, the ABC affiliate in Las Cruces, N.M. “Bees were coming out of my mouth, my ears, my nose and flying around the hospital,” he told KVIA. via Gawker
