Hunter rescued after attack by bees
Firefighters rescued a pig hunter yesterday after he was attacked by a swarm of bees and tumbled down a hillside above Tantalus.
The man, who was in his 30s or 40s, was with two other hunters hiking on the Moana Cliffs Trail at about 12:30 p.m., said city fire Capt. Terry Seelig.
The men encountered a beehive, and all three were stung by bees. One had an allergic reaction, Seelig said. In an attempt to get away, two of the men, including the man with the allergy, dropped about 60 feet off the side of the trail in a "rolling tumble," Seelig said.
Firefighters hiked about two miles and rappelled down to reach the stranded hunters.
A fire helicopter picked up the allergic man and transferred him to an ambulance at a park on Round Top Drive at about 1:50 p.m.
The two others hiked out with firefighters.
