Bee Attack Sends Six To Hospital

Six people were hospitalized after a swarm of bees attacked residents at an Arizona golf course community on Saturday. Three adults and three children were attacked, including one adult who suffered nearly 300 bee stings. People at the Rancho El Dorado subdivision in Maricopa were running and screaming for help as the bees attacked a two-block-long area around 5pm, according to the fire department. Two firefighters who were also stung during the rescue did not need treatment at the hospital, the department said. It took fire crews about two hours to find the hive in an opened water valve box at one of the homes. The bees were sprayed with foam, and the hive was contained and killed. A particularly aggressive strain of honeybee menaced parts of Arizona during the summer, with some people getting stung so many times that they were hospitalized. Daily Mail Read More>>>>>
