Wanzleben (Saxony-Anhalt) – A beehive, two retirees and a lot of hatred.
A mixture that ended almost fatally for Manfred K. (70) in the tranquil Wanzleben district of Bergen (Saxony-Anhalt).
The beekeeper received a knife stab in the kidney from his neighbor, life threatening!
Manfred K. moved to Bergen from Baden-Württemberg eleven years ago. Because of love.
But the relationship with neighbor Helmut R. (79) was difficult from the start. The beekeeper: “He smeared my garage door, attacked me with irritant gas and poisoned my hedges.” Criminal charges, civil suits, years of anger!
Then, five weeks ago, it finally escalated. Manfred K .: “Helmut washed his car. I asked him not to. ”Concerned that the bees might drink from the mopping water. “Then they die.”
Helmut R.’s fuses blow. He goes after the beekeeper with a knife! “He was chopping around wildly. When I left, he must have caught me from behind. I felt something warm – everything was full of blood. ”A kidney stitch!
Rescue helicopter! Manfred K. is put into an artificial coma because the kidneys failed. “I had to be operated three times.” His wife: “It’s a miracle he’s still alive.”
The engraver was arrested, but was quickly released. Opposite BILD: not a word! He is being investigated for attempted manslaughter.
