Arizona woman recovering from bee attack after hive falls on her head
PHOENIX — An Arizona woman is recovering from a massive bee attack after heavy winds from Monday’s storm blew a hive off a tree and it landed on her head.
The unidentified woman was stung more than 20 times as she picked up her child from daycare, the Tempe Fire Department said.
Assistant Chief Andrea Glass said the woman happened to be walking under the tree where the hive was when wind blew it off.
The woman was stung 20 to 30 times on and around her head.
She was evaluated and opted to have her husband drive her to a hospital.
Firefighters sprayed the hive with foam because of its proximity to the daycare and a school.
Wind gusts around metro Phoenix reached 45 mph on Monday, according to the National Weather Service.
