This is the moment a lorry driver covered in wasp stings screams in pain as two cops drive him to hospital.

The authorities were called to Jingshan service station on the Shanghai-Chengdu Expressway in Central China after lorry driver Mr Yang was stung on the arm on 1st November.

The lorry driver broke out with a serious rash all over his body after the bite, leaving police needing to urgently rush him to the nearest hospital.

Body-worn camera footage shared by the Zhongxiang Brigade of the Hubei Highway Traffic Police Detachment shows Mr Yang howling in the back of a police car.

Mr Yang was told not to touch or scratch his rash, which left him in agony from pain and itching.

In the video, the screaming lorry driver is seen falling unconscious shortly after, with one cop telling the other to drive faster.

Mr Yang reached Jingshan People’s Hospital 20 minutes later and was treated for his wasp stings and the apparent allergic reaction his body was having from the attack.

He remained in hospital and was discharged after making a full recovery, the police said.
