Family escapes swarm of yellowjackets thanks to strangers By: Conroy Delouche Posted at 4:49 PM, Oct 07, 2020 and last updated 6:26 PM, Oct 07, 2020
RED RIVER GORGE, Ky. (LEX 18) — You may have heard the phrase "kicking the hornet's nest."
For one group hiking in Red River Gorge, stirring a nest of yellowjackets led to a chaotic situation. One man in their group was struggling to breathe because of an allergic reaction, and there was no relief in sight.
Leslie Lindsey says their Sunday hike started much differently, with laughs and jokes along the trail.
They were determined to see Copperas Falls in Red River Gorge.
"And my brother started yelling out 'something stung me.' And started swatting at his clothes," said Lindsey. Someone had kicked a nest of yellowjackets. Lindsey's daughter, Addie, was among those swarmed.
"She tripped and fell, and hurt her ankle, and hit her head. She was like, 'I'm getting stung.' And panicked," said Lindsey.
But they escaped the wasps and eventually reached the falls.

jamiekaj: I'm new to climbing (been in the gym for about a month now) and am looking for partners to get me to the gorge and back (from Lexington) / teach me a few things. I have gear (minus a rope) and could provide pizza, gas, and beer.
