Elderly California Woman Survives More Than 1,000 Bee Stings

Remember four or five years ago when scientists were wondering what happened to all of the bees? Well, it turns out they all moved to Palm Desert, and they are pissed.
Killer bees sting woman 1,000 times
According to CBS Los Angeles, a 71-year-old woman is still alive after being stung more than 1,000 times last week by an angry swarm of nearly 75,000 Afrikanized bees.

The woman, a local telecommunications worker, had parked her car near an underground Verizon cable box when the swarm ascended from their nest and attacked her in her car. When firefighters arrived on the scene, they said it looked like the woman was wearing a "suit of bees."

Five firefighters were also injured while assisting the woman, and three of them suffered stings severe enough they were sent to a nearby hospital for treatment.

A bee removal expert eventually was able to rid the area of the bees without getting stung and is actually planning on taking them to several bee farms across the desert.

No word as to whether or not the woman is planning to sue her financial planner because of the fact she is a 71-year-old woman who isn't retired yet.
