Mass bee sting victim out of hospital

12:36 pm on 3 November 2013

A man who was stung up to 100 times by bees in Hawkes Bay has been discharged from hospital.

The 43-year-old had initially been in a critical condition after a queen bee flew down the back of his shirt in Putorino, causing the other bees to follow.

The man was helped by a passing truck driver before being airlifted to Hawke's Bay Regional Hospital.
