Man Saves Bumblebee From Death

beeHERO.jpg

A caring YouTube user nursed a dying bumblebee back to health in a video that will warm the hearts of apiarists everywhere.

MadMark00 did not live up to his name after finding the lifeless insect in his garden. He proceeded to feed it honey, initially by hand, then watch it gradually come back to life - all the while filming its progress. The choice of honey apparently came after he'd watched a video previously showing someone reviving a bee with sugar water; see, YouTube's not just for watching cat videos and people falling over.

Without wishing to spoil the ending, the bee ends up flying away and everyone's happy (well, until it stings someone).
