TOM Plunkett is lucky to be alive today after being stung by a wasp in his back garden.
For some that might merely mean a swelling and some pain but for Dr Plunkett who is allergic to their poison it could mean death.
Having been stung before he knew he was within minutes of death if he could not get medical attention fast.

Ironically on the same day, a lorry driver also stared death in the face after being stung by a bee as he drove along the A12 at Yoxford.
Both men were stung on the neck which could be more serious as the poison pumps around the body quicker and the neck is in danger of swelling up and restricting breathing.
