WASPS ATTACK: Swarm inflicts life-threatening attack on man
A LEYBURN man has gone into anaphylactic shock after being attacked by a swarm of wasps this afternoon.
The Toowoomba based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter was urgently tasked to Leyburn after a male in his late sixties was stung numerous times.
It's believed the patient was about to inspect a solar pump when he opened the lid and the wasps flew out and stung him.
A local ambulance crew were first on scene and stabilised the patient before he was airlifted to the Toowoomba Hospital in a stable condition.
