Person stung several hundred times on Tucson's east side, hospitalized

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

One person has been hospitalized after being reportedly stung hundreds of times near Golf N' Stuff on the east side this afternoon, according to Capt. Barrett Baker with the Tucson Fire Department.

A woman in her thirties was swarmed by hundreds of bees on Tanque Verde between Pima and Grant around 2:30 p.m.

A bystander called 911 and the Tucson Fire Department arrived on scene with their medic truck. Firefighters had to put on their firefighter gear before getting the bees off of the woman. She was then rushed to a local hospital where she is in stable condition.

The bee extinguisher says the hive may be near a wash in the area as crews continue to remove the bees.
