Austin Bellamy, 20, was stung thousands of times by bees Friday in Ripley, Ohio.

A 20-year-old man is in the hospital after getting stung thousands of times by bees Friday in Ripley, Ohio.

Austin Bellamy was put on a ventilator in a medically induced coma at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center after the incident Friday. He came out of the coma on Wednesday, according to his family.

Bellamy was up in a lemon tree trimming branches Friday morning with his grandmother, Phyllis Edwards, and his uncle, Dustin Edwards, standing below. At some point, Bellamy unknowingly cut into a beehive.

“When he started cutting them, that’s when the bees came out, and he tried to anchor himself down, and he couldn’t,” Phyllis recalled. “He was hollering, ‘Help! Help me! Help!’ And nobody would help him.”

Phyllis and Dustin watched the entire episode unfold from the ground, unable to scale the ladder because they themselves were under attack.
