Florida Man Washes Sidewalk, Gets Attacked By Ants
[su_r_sky_ad]Some news stories just make me itch all over. But enough about Jodi Ernst. Here’s a story of some swarming insects with a really bad attitude toward a well-maintained front yard:
Angry ants overwhelmed an elderly Florida man, but he had a crew of firefighters on his side.
Jack Hurdt, 81, was pressure washing his sidewalk when he stirred up a nest of the biting insects, according to a news report.
The little buggers nipped and chewed the senior, bringing him down before he could get inside.
“Went about 15 feet, pushed the doorbell — next thing I knew, I was on the ground,” Hurdt told WESH. “I was out.”
His wife found him unconscious on the doorstep and called for help. …
A crew from Brevard County Fire Rescue rushed to his aid, and then the do-gooders came back and finished pressure washing the walk while Hurdt was being treated at a hospital.
The stunned man and his wife came home to find a note waiting for them.
“Dear Mr. Hurdt and family. We finished pressure washing your front walk,” the letter said.
