Bee at­tack sends man to hos­pi­tal

Austin American-Statesman - - LOCALBRIEFING -

Sev­eral hun­dred bees at­tacked two men who were on bull­doz­ers in Bas­trop County on Mon­day. One man, 29-yearold Casey Allen, was flown to Uni­ver­sity Med­i­cal Cen­ter Brack­en­ridge for treat­ment, sher­iff’s of­fi­cials said.

Allen and an­other man were at­tacked about 10 a.m. Sher­iff’s of­fi­cials do not know if the men were work­ing on the land as a crew for a con­tract­ing com­pany or as pri­vate in­di­vid­u­als.

A hos­pi­tal of­fi­cial said Mon­day af­ter­noon that Allen was in the emer­gency room in fair con­di­tion.
