Swarm of bees hospitalizes six people”

A swarm of bees stung a group of shoppers and one firefighter in Monterey Park on Saturday afternoon, sending at least one person to the hospital, authorities said.

"When I got here there was a bee around my head so I started riding faster", said Michael Hsu, a witness and food truck employee. It was unclear where the bee swarm came from or how the people ended up being stung. "People were screaming and trying to go inside or trying to leave".

The disturbance lead to the bees attacking numerous people in the parking lot and two women were completely covered in bees, according to Monterey Park Fire Chief Mark Khail.

The fire department reported that the people hospitalized are expected to make a full recovery. Firefighters on scene were wearing protective gear to avoid excessive stings.

"I went in and sealed any areas that bees were congregating with some high-density foam and we used firefighting foam to suppress any bee behavior", Lankin said.

Two of the people who were stung were taken to a nearby hospital, authorities said.
