Beekeeper purposely covers himself with more than 1 million bees


CHINA – A man willingly covered his entire body to set a Guinness World Record.

More than one million bees swarmed a beekeeper who purposely placed several queen bees on himself to attract other worker bees. The bees weighed more than 240 pounds and caused the man’s body temperature to rise up to 140 degrees.

To protect his face and mouth, the man smoked a cigarette while the bees coated his body.

Despite being stung more than 2,000 times, the man beat the previous record by about fifty pounds of bees.
