20 Stung, 3 Taken To Hospital In Bee Attack In SoCal Park

CERRITOS, Calif. (AP) — The Los Angeles County Fire Department says a swarm of bees attacked at a suburban park, stinging more than 20 people and sending three to the hospital.

Dispatching supervisor Bernard Peters said Sunday that the attack happened Saturday evening at Cerritos Regional Park.

Witnesses tell KCBS-TV that there were thousands of bees chasing hundreds of people and that the insects seemed to be attacking people with long hair.

Peters says the three people taken to the hospital all are expected to be OK and that the bees left the park within an hour of the attack.
