Hundreds Of Bees Attack Workers Repairing 70ft Advertising Billboard

Eight workers were attacked by swarms on angry bees while they were repairing a 70ft-high billboard.

The workers were changing the banner on the tall advertising structure when they accidentally disturbed a beehive in Phitsanulok province, on Tuesday morning.

The furious bees swarmed around the workers who tried to scare the insects using spray paint and other construction materials but without success.

To escape the stinging creatures, five workers immediately descended through the cable while three of their colleagues were left trapped on top.

Two of the trapped workers covered themselves using the plastic banner they were installing while the other one climbed further up the billboard to keep away from the bees.

The five workers who escaped called the paramedics and rescuers for help upon reaching ground before they were given first aid treatment for their stings.

The rescuers climbed up the billboard but the defiant bees refused to leave their victims. The team had to use chemical substances to repel the bees and reach the remaining workers on top.

The rescue operation lasted about two hours as the bees tried to attack the volunteers as well.

The team used a crane to lift volunteers to the top of the billboard and take the workers with them. The worker who climbed the highest point of the billboard was not injured.

All the injured workers were sent to the hospital after the rescue mission ended. Bee stings are painful but can be lethal to those who are allergic to them.

Five Dead In Bangkok Bound Bus Fire

Five people, three adults and two children, died in the early hours of Tuesday morning when the Bangkok bound bus they were travelling on caught fire in Khon Kaen Province.

12 passengers who suffered serious injuries are being treated at Sirindhorn Hospital while 16 others managed to flee the inferno unscathed.

The bus driver, 48-year-old Phsamdee Khamkhon, told police the bus had left Udon Thani heading for Mo Chit in Bangkok on Monday night as scheduled.

He said as he was passing through Ban Haet district he had a tyre blow out which suddenly set the back of the bus ablaze. The fire spread rapidly and by the time he stopped the vehicle, it was engulfed in flames.

It took firefighters 30 minutes to bring the blaze under control.

Maj. Gen. Putthipong Musikul, Deputy Chief of Khon Kaen Provincial Police, led a team of investigators to examine the wreckage this morning and question all who managed to escape.
