This is Alec. He is a goalie for his soccer team. He is allergic to wasps.
Alec dives to save the ball and lands on a wasp which stings him. He thinks that he just landed on a prickly weed and keeps playing.
One minute later Alec starts getting hives all over his body and it gets hard to breath. He runs over to his mom and she calls an ambulance, she had forgotten his epi-pen at home. An epi-pen is something you use to get a burst of adrenaline, or epinephrine depending on your allergy, when having an allergic reaction.
Alec faints and is given a dose of adrenaline to open his airways. He is then taken to the hospital where he is stabilized and admitted for a few days to be observed.
While at the hospital Alec asks the doctor to explain what happened to him.
