Woman stung by 80,000 Africanised bees in California

The woman, known only as Maria, was stung at least 200 times by thousands of hybrid Africanized honey bees (Apis mellifera scutellata), also sometimes referred to as "killer bees", said Nicole Sorenson of Bee Busters, the company called in to remove the bees after Monday's attack.

Shortly before 10:30 a.m., the woman had arrived to clean a home in the 23000 block of Buckland Lane when she was attacked by a swarm of bees, Orange County Fire Authority Capt. The attack supposedly happened after she parked her vehicle near a beehive that was hidden in bushes, then exited her auto to get cleaning supplies for her work.

The woman, described as being about 50 years old, was stung "hundreds of times", according to a tweet from the Fire Authority. "Her face was completely covered with bees", he said.

Four firefighters were called to the woman's Southern California home on Monday with reports she had been stung by a swarm of the insects.

Tony Bommarrito, fire captain in Orange County, told ABCthe incident was one of the worst they had seen.

When their truck pulled up to the home in Lake Forest, Calif., they saw a cleaning lady being attacked by a swarm of some 80,000 bees. On her body there are over 200 bites. "So", he says, ".I grabbed her by the wrist and just started pulling her down the street", He and other firefighters sprayed her with Carbon dioxide from an extinguisher to try and get the bees to leave.

All four firefighters were stung in the process, but finally, Maria was dragged from the scene.

Six people in total were hospitalized, including Sarah who complained of breathing issues hours after the attack.

Donning protective gear would take too long, the firefighters decided, so they sprung into action without it. "So we made the decision just to grab her, and take off and get out of the area, because we didn't know where the bees were coming from".

One of the OCFA paramedics, Ryan Wilson, told local NBC affiliate that the bees "were nearly in clusters. maybe the size of a golf ball all over her". The hive was hidden by bushes.

Bee experts removed about 10 pounds of hive.

"She was kind of just struck over with fear, and I kept grabbing her, telling her, 'Let's go, ' and she had bees all over her arms". The homeowner, who only went by the name Sara, recalled the attack that sent her housekeeper Maria to the hospital. The two other firefighters who were stung just a few times each declined a trip to a hospital, Bommarito said.
