Nature, please: A hiker in Phoenix's South Mountain Park was attacked by hundreds of bees on Monday. Sounds like the guy went a little ways off trail and got swarmed. Two hours later, the fire department had to do a helicopter rescue, the bees were so thick.
Several people tried to run to the hiker's aid. But they couldn't get close. One man came within ten feet and was repeatedly stung himself. Two brothers say they then tried to help, but were warned to stay back at least 50 feet because the bees were so dangerous. Even police and park rangers could not help the hiker.
By the time a special technical rescue team with the Phoenix Fire Department arrived, the man had been under attack for 2 hours. Six members of the rescue unit donned special bee suits with helmets, taped up their wrists to close up any holes and started down the mountain.
Potential for 700-foot falls exists pretty much everywhere on this via ferrata in Spain. The government apparently closed the entrances to the trail after four people died in two years, but that didn't stop this guy with his camera and a handful of other tourists in the video. Check out the giant holes at 1:25 and 2:25.
