Four people in La Mesa, Calif. are recovering in the hospital after being attacked by a swarm of “killer” bees.
A 79-year-old woman was stung 30 to 50 times by the Africanized bees. Her 82-year-old husband was stung 20 times, San Diego 6 News reported Thursday.
The two other victims include a 36-year-old woman and her 5-year-old son.
The La Mesa Fire Department and a professional beekeeper were called in to destroy the hive located on the roof of a house.
"They (the bees) have a bad attitude,” beekeeper Mike Zito told the news station. “They're a lot more aggressive, and they're a lot more territorial."
Firemen used a fire extinguisher with soapy water to “neutralize” the hive.
On Saturday, a 53-year-old man was hospitalized after being stung "a couple thousand times" in what authorities are calling the worst bee attack around Las Vegas in 20 years.
