A man who went to buy some groceries returned to his car only to find a swarm of bees had taken over.
Rizwan Khan was shopping in Sydney, Australia, when he returned 10 minutes later and was surprised to see a crowd of people taking photos and videos of inside his Jeep.
As he neared his car, he realised that a huge swarm of bees had managed to fly inside of his car and had settled onto the doorframe by the driver’s seat.
“Maybe they liked my Jeep, you know?” Mr Khan told 9News.
“I returned to the car and I had people around the car with their cameras on and bees inside the car.”
In an unbee-lievable stroke of good luck, a local beekeeper happened to stumble across the scene.
“This old man came up to me [and said] ‘do you want to give it to me?'” Mr Khan continued.
“And I said, of course, you can take them all.”
Footage taken from the incident showed the beekeeper using his bare hands to scoop the bees into a box.
“He was a lifesaver for me,” Mr Khan said, adding that he will be keeping the windows of his car firmly closed from now on.
In the UK, one man was forced to call a beekeeper back in May after a swarm of 20,000 honey bees descended on his car’s number plate.
Jon Tribbeck, 51, was alerted by a neighbour who noticed the infestation and was shocked when he saw the “black cloud” which appeared like “something out of a horror film”.
Elsewhere in Brazil, two dogs died after being attacked by a swarm of killer bees in the town of Guarapari in South East Brazilian state of Espirito Santo.
