Reuters News Service

Buenos Aires, December 22, 1999 - A dog saved his four-year-old master from a swarm of bees by covering him with his body according to Argentine police.

Kharin Toloza was playing with his dog Chocolate in Valle Viejo, northwestern Argentina, when he was attacked by the insects, local police told the state-run Telam news agency.

The dog jumped and stayed on top of the boy, who was taken to hospital but was declared out of danger after receiving just a few stings. The dog died from the stings.
