A scary incident for a california boy and his family.
The little boy was the victim of a terrifying bee attack last weekend.
But Glen Walker reports he’s made a full recovery … and even developed an affinity for the pesky insects.
Little guy walking with his grandfather is 4-year-old Max Bordonaro.
But this is max just four nights ago laying in a hospital bed, after he was attacked by a swarm on insects in warner center park.
Yeah I got attacked.
I was full of yellow jackets all over me yellow jackets all over me.
Reporter Yeah, how many?
I would say like 40.
Actually it was bees that attacked max and a few other kids as they were kicking around a a soccer ball in the middle of the park.
When his grandmother brought him back home, his mother kimberly counted 40 bee stings.
It was terrifying, to see your little child covered in bee stings.
It was heartbreaking to hear him in pain and very terrifying that something really bad could have happened to him.
Kimberly said she pulled 25 bee stingers out of max’s arms, legs, head and body, but the worst was yet to come.
Max’s face, especially his lips began to swell up.
The major concern for me was that he was going to die.
When we were home and he started twitching and having seizures, then I heard him having some throat breathing going on”
Max was rushed to a local hospital.
They gave me some medicine and the Benadryl, so we went to the hospital.
I stayed there for like two days and one night.
He was very brave throughout the entire process.
He really astonishes me.
Just the way that children are resilient and they bounce back, and he’s out to playing again.
Max has fully recovered from his scary ordeal…in fact max’s mom says, since the incident on sunday, max is taking quite an interest in insects that sting and right now his favorite insect is the yellowjacket.
The fire department in woodland hills is checking around the area to make sure that it wasn’t a swarm of killer bees that attacked the children.
