Swarm of Bees Sends Man to Hospital

Swarm of Bees Sends Man to Hospital


A swarm of bees stung a man possibly hundreds of times Thursday afternoon on the east side of town, sending him to the hospital.

Clark County firefighters rescued the man, whose identity has not yet been released, from the swarm behind a shopping center near Eastern Avenue and Desert Inn Road around 4:30 p.m. He was transported to Sunrise Hospital for treatment.

Firefighters then doused the beehive with foam to prevent any additional problems.
