A New Mexico man got more than he bargained for when returning from a grocery trip to find his car taken over by bees. Luckily, one of the firefighters called on the scene practiced beekeeping.

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. Maybe they wanted to help with the groceries, or maybe they just needed a ride. Whatever the case, a man in New Mexico did not expect to find 15,000 bees in his car. He noticed them after he started to leave the supermarket. Confused, he called 911. Luckily, one of the firefighters had the perfect hobby for this situation. He's a beekeeper. The firefighter carefully relocated the bees to his property. It's MORNING EDITION.
