Survival expert Bear Grylls has to be protected by medics after he was banged by a bee sting.
Bear Grylls has an allergy tendency to bee stings – was hit by one of the insects while shooting for his new show “Treasure Island”, but doctors were soon present to save his life from a potentially life-threatening situation.
Mano Shanmuganathan is one of the islanders on his new show, told the Daily Star newspaper that “I think that Bear is an impressive guy. He understands his tasks at hand and knows what he has to achieve.”
While Grylls was on a boat taking a new batch of adventure junkies to an island in a remote place of the Pacific – on the very starting day of filming for ‘Channel 4’, the trouble took place with the survival expert.
Initially, he tried to carry out his shooting but soon his frightening turn for the worse.
Medics have expected his allergy reaction could cost his life so they soon injected him with an EpiPen containing medicine that offset the venom.
Brain Surgeon Mano Shanmuganathan was shocked to see him reacting so badly.
He continued, “The irony of Bear the survivalist being stung, having the potential of an allergic reaction, and needing to be treated with an EpiPen, was a bizarre moment. That was crazy.”
However, it’s not for the first time Bear Grylls has suffered an extreme reaction, back in 2016, as part of his Born Survivor TV Show, he smoked out a beehive to steal honey in Baja California.
The resulting response saw his eyes swell up so much that viewers remarked that Grylls looked like Actor Benedict Cumberbatch.
