British teenager sees drowning bee in the River Thames so she jumps in to save it but then has to be rushed to a hospital because she cut her foot open on a sharp object laying on the riverbed

Jul 27th

Okay, I'm embarrassed for this girl:

So this girl Sophie Hawkins—couldn't have thought of a better name myself—she's out on a friend's boat on the Thames near Swindon last week just trying to make it through the heatwave. She's apparently been there a long time because it's 8 p.m., and she notices something on the top of the water.

No it wasn't anything cool like a Northern Pike devouring a duck.

It was a drowning bee.

Yes, this drowning bee caught her eye and she didn't do the normal thing like you or I would do, which would be to go about our day, maybe watch the bee to see how long it would take for it to die. No.

SHE JUMPED IN TO TRY AND SAVE IT!!!

SHE TRIED TO SAVE…

A BEE.

A BEE!!

And as if that wasn't enough stupid for this story, once her feet hit the bottom of the river her foot got sliced open by a sharp object which has been sitting there for who knows how long.

The nasty injury, which severed a tendon, was just a few centimetres off slicing her toes - which could have had left her with life-changing injuries.

So this chick almost lost her toes…

BECAUSE SHE WANTED TO SAVE A DROWNING BEE!!!

And that's the dumbest thing you'll hear all day.

Luckily her brother was there to jump in and rescue her, and rushed her to a nearby hospital.

I will say this: at least she didn't get stung by the bee!
