The woman, 28 and identified by her last name of He, was basically the victim of a so-called freak accident. She was participating in an annual tomb-cleaning festival when she felt what she thought was sand in one eye, news outlets reported. She rinsed her eye with water, but when it became painfully swollen and started tearing, she sought out medical attention.
That's when Hung, to his amazement, found the tiny live bees behind her eye. He slowly extracted them by their feet and was "shocked" that they were still alive, the BBC reported.
