Buffalo Grove police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 3:20 PM Saturday September 16, 2017 to a report of a serious allergic reaction to a bee sting on Mill Creek Drive near the intersection of Mill Creek Drive and Arlington Heights Road Buffalo Grove, Il. Police and firefighter/paramedics learned that a man suffered from an anaphylactic reaction after being stung by three insects.
The adult male experienced life-threatening anaphylaxis reaction to bee, wasp or hornet stings. Firefighter/paramedics were not aware what exact type of insects stung the man.
Ambulance 25’s crew transported one male patient to Northwest Community Hospital with extra paramedics aboard the ambulance for Advanced Life Support. The man was reported to have survived the allergic reaction overnight at Northwest Community Hospital.
The incident occurred just over two years after a man from unincorporated Palatine died from an anaphylactic reaction to a bee sting or hornet sting that occurred at his home, northeast of Algonquin Road and Meacham Road. The man called 9-1-1 on his own and paramedics responded immediately, but he was pronounced dead about 78 minutes after he was stung.
