Hornets stings 11 people of film crew in Yangminshan 劇組竹子湖拍戲製造煙霧  11人遭虎頭蜂螫

The crew attracts killer hornets when they try to create smoke for filming in a national park and are consequently fined.


Presenter: A Taipei entertainment company filmed at Yangmingshan's Zhuzihu black forest without a permit. They were attacked by the hornets and 11 people were taken to the hospital.

11 people were stung by hornets on the 23rd afternoon at the black forest area near Taipei's Zhuzihu Road. Police and first responders dispatched personnel to the scene checking for injuries immediately after receiving reports. 9 people were taken to the hospital and another 2 people sought medical care themselves. The people attacked were part of the film crew who was filming at the time.

Wang Yao-chen, Captain, Taipei Fire Department Fourth Brigade:”They created some smoke effects prior to filming because they wanted to create a scene effect. The crew also sprayed some camphor oil because they were afraid of mosquito bites. The hornets attacked right before filming.”

The crew said they didn't start filming yet and only used about five or six centimeters of wood to test without igniting it on fire. Then the hornets unexpectedly attacked. 

Ben, Darton Entertainment:”We've scouted this location before and have never seen any wasps. And we never tried to draw any attention to them either. I don't know why they attacked us.”

All 11 of those attacked are conscious and fine, with no life-threatening.  The police said the crew used smoke cakes at the scene and also found traces of burning. However, lighting a fire on Yangmingshan violates the National Park Law and the crew was reported on the spot.

 

 

台北市竹子湖路附近黑森林山區,23號下午有11位民眾遭虎頭蜂螫傷,警消獲報後立即派員到場,啟動大量傷患機制進行檢傷,將其中9人被送醫救治,另外2人自行就醫,初步了解,是劇組拍戲時遭到螫傷。

台北市消防局第四大隊大隊長 王耀震:「他們準備拍戲前,因為要製造拍戲的效果,有製造一些煙霧的效果,因為又怕蚊蟲叮咬,又噴了一些樟腦油,正準備要拍戲之前,突然間蜜蜂就出來做攻擊了。」

不過業者表示,當時還沒有開拍,只用了大約五六公分的木頭在試,並沒有點燃火種,沒想到就遭到頭頂上的虎頭蜂攻擊。

達騰娛樂業者 Ben:「我們之前也去看過這個場景,沒有發現過虎頭蜂,都沒有去動到牠們,不知道為什麼會下來、這個不知道。」

遭到蜂螫的11個人都意識清楚,沒有生命危險。警方表示,劇組在現場有使用煙餅,也有發現燃燒過的痕跡,不過在陽明山上點火,已經違反國家公園法,當場舉發。
