A dad in Braintree, Massachusetts is happy his 9-year-old daughter tagged along on a landscaping job earlier this week.

Boston 25 News says Alex Schneider was doing a landscaping job for a friend, and while mowing the lawn, accidentally ran over a bees nest. The bees swarmed all over his body, stinging him as they chased him into his friend's home. For Schneider this was suddenly a life or death matter because he is allergic to bees.


First responders arrived quickly, and rushed Schneider to the hospital, where he was released a few hours later. He later told the TV station, "I don’t think I’d be standing here today right now if she wasn’t there with me."

Braintree firefighters tweeted about the incident, calling Arianna a "little hero."
