Man swarmed by bees in Wayne

WAYNE (WGME) -- A routine response for a tow driver turns into a trip to the hospital after he's swarmed by thousands of bees.

Jason Small, a driver for Don's No Preference Towing, got a call on Wednesday to tow a truck from the Wayne Fire Station parking lot.

But he wasn't told the truck was carrying bees.

Small says when he hooked up the truck, the bees swarmed.

Small says he was stung on the arm and jumped in his truck's cab. He tells the Kennebec Journal his arm went numb; he momentarily lost vision, and began to "sweat like crazy."
