Californian woman hospitalized after being stung hundreds of times by 100,000 bees living in her home’s walls, prompting a GoFundMe campaign for hive removal.
A Life-threatening Situation
In a harrowing turn of events, Linda Briggs, a 74-year-old resident of Murrieta, California, found herself in a life-threatening situation.
Bees Had Made Her House Their Home
She was attacked by a swarm of approximately 100,000 bees that had made their home in the walls of her house.
Attacked By Bees
The incident occurred on June 28 while Briggs was outside her home as the bees suddenly flew toward her.
She Couldn’t Get Away!
Despite her attempts to swat them away with a towel, they quickly overwhelmed her, covering her hands and face.
Hero With a Hose and Phone
Realizing the severity of the situation, a concerned neighbor promptly called 911 and attempted to assist by using a hose to spray the bees.
The Fire Department Needed to Intervene
The Murrieta Fire Department swiftly responded to the emergency, employing water and foam to mitigate the risk posed by the aggressive bees.
She Needed Immediate Medical Treatment
The sheer number of stings sustained by both Briggs and a firefighter necessitated their immediate transportation to a local hospital for urgent medical treatment.
700 Stingers Were Found in Her Body
Reflecting on the incident, Briggs revealed that over 700 bee stingers were found embedded in her body during her hospitalization.
Even a Dozen Stings Can Be Toxic
The Mayo Clinic warns that even a dozen bee stings can result in a toxic reaction and severe illness due to the accumulation of venom in the body.
She Can’t Believe She’s Alive
Briggs acknowledged the fortunate outcome, noting that others have tragically lost their lives under similar circumstances, and emphasized the potential fatality of future stings due to the significant levels of toxins present in her system.
Fund Raisers Have Been Started
A GoFundMe campaign has been established to support Briggs in permanently removing the hive from her home.
A Community Health Threat
The fundraiser underscores the urgent nature of the situation, highlighting that what initially started as a mere annoyance over six years ago has now evolved into a community health threat that demands immediate attention and resolution.
She’s Expected to Make a Full Recovery
Despite the ordeal, there is some relief as the campaign assures concerned supporters that Briggs is expected to make a full recovery from the traumatic incident.
People From All Over Are Showing Support
The community has rallied around her, demonstrating their support and solidarity in the face of this extraordinary challenge.
