VIDEO: WPEC Aerial Drone Attacked by Bees

When WPEC news operations manager Carl Pugliese launched a remote camera drone to get an aerial view of the Palm Beach Mall demolition last week for the West Palm Beach CBS affiliate, he had no idea he would incite a swarm of bees to attack.

In the video, you can see a few bees quickly became a swarm. Eventually, the bees got so thick on the drone Pugliese was forced to bring it in closer to see what the problem was.

Angry bees became a cloud around the drone and also began attacking Pugliese and CBS12 cameraman Chad Ellison, whom Pugliese captured dancing and swatting frantically to avoid being stung. Didn’t help. Both of them took several stings. Pugliese himself can be seen toward the end of the drone video, diving into his SUV to avoid the swarm. Unfortunately for him some tagged along inside, and he is seen trying to fling them out. He landed the drone from inside the car.

Of the four covering the story, the drone, Pugliese, Ellison and reporter Jenna Calazzo, only Calazzo avoided getting stung. She retreated to the safety of the live truck. You can view the video after the jump.
