QUANG NAM – An 11-month-old baby has survived being severely stung by bees on her face and head earlier this month, according to Dr Nguyen Minh Tuan from the Viet Nam-Korea National Children's Friendship Hospital.
The baby's father Nguyen Dinh Hue, a resident of Thang Binh District, said that bees swarmed around a female neighbour who ran into his house to escape them. The baby was stung seriously enough to render her unconscious.
Both father and daughter were taken to the hospital where the baby received large doses of antibiotics. After 10 days of treatment, she recovered her health and will likely return home in a few days. — VNS
