VIDEO: His legs and neck covered in red marks, a San Tan Valley man can call himself a survivor. Marshall Biddinger jumped into action when his neighbor came to him for help. Her four dogs were trapped in her backyard, under attack from a massive swarm of bees. The Rural Metro Fire Department says the incident happened Wednesday around 2:30 p.m. near Hunt Highway and Mountain Vista Boulevard. "All I see is a black mist, black fog, and it's bees, and they're everywhere," says Biddinger. Wearing only a t-shirt and shorts, he threw on a heavy jacket, grabbed a hat, and ran toward the swarm to try to save the dogs. "I grabbed a fire extinguisher and started spraying, and they started attacking me. There was a ton on my neck," says Biddinger. He quickly realized he couldn't fight his way through the bees to get to the dogs.
