What do you get when you mix alcohol, fire , snake, caravan and an inability to think things through? sounds like a Quentin Tarantino movie doesnt it?

Man towing trailer of bees escapes rollover 'miraculously uninjured', only to be stung by swarm
Updated 4 minutes ago

MAP: Katherine 0850
A driver crawled "miraculously uninjured" from the wreckage of a vehicle rollover only to be stung by a swarm of angry bees that had escaped from the trailer he was towing, police say.

Police and fire crews were called to remove the vehicle because of the "bee hazard" at the accident scene on the Stuart Highway about 17 kilometres north of Katherine in the Northern Territory, according to Duty Superintendent Louise Jorgensen.

"The bees became very angry and they escaped and as he was crawling out of the vehicle miraculously uninjured he got stung by the bees," she said.

Police were called to the accident at about 5:45pm on Wednesday.

"The bees presented more of an issue than the wreckage initially," Duty Superintendent Jorgensen said.

"We were concerned if people saw the wreckage passing by they were going to stop and get stung as well.

"It was quite a hazard for the attending police and fire crews."

The four-wheel drive vehicle had flipped and come to rest in scrubland 10 metres from the edge of the road.

"He was towing a trailer full of bees when the trailer wheel caught the edge of the road," Duty Superintendent Jorgensen said.

"The vehicle and the trailer fishtailed for quite a distance, then the vehicle actually flipped."

She said the 18-year-old man was uninjured except for the bee stings.

Oh come on, what could possibly go wrong? More than 50% of tourists go home alive these days.

Unfortunately they are mostly the Barmy Army and the *******s keep coming back! (better expalin that , I see you are from the US. Barmy Army = organised tour of mostly drunk , loud chanting, ever optimistic English sport supporters who turn up at sporting events to watch Australia flog England at any sport, but most notably cricket. They are good fun really and give us a mouthful should they somehow manage a win e.g. our tour bus may crash)

I would so not like to see that in person.

I think the couple of thousand kilometres (and change) between me and croc latitude is barely sufficient.

I'm about 1000km shy of croc country but there have been salty's found in local rivers from time to time

Didn't stop me flinging the children off the tube behind the boat in the Brisbane river when they were younger. As for the supposed thousands of bull sharks residing in the Brisbane river, been here since 1988 and never heard of a shark having a human dinner in the river.

Gee, you want to be careful saying things like that. The tourists might start thinking it's safe to come here!

How did they get the " relatively harmless " bit ???


At least in Croydon, on the way home from the pub you only have to worry about hoodies and illegal immigrants, and none of them want to eat you !
