YUMA, Ariz. - An 81-year-old Arizona woman is recovering after being attacked by hundreds of bees.

A spokesman for the Yuma Fire Department says when paramedics arrived Monday, they found the woman sitting on a sidewalk covered in the insects.

The department says she was stung multiple times on her face and body.

Firefighters sprayed the woman with a foam mixture to remove most of the bees and keep them back while moving the victim.

Paramedics began treating her immediately and she was transported to a hospital.

Some of the rescuers were also stung by angry bees.

The Yuma Sun reports a witness said the woman was taking out the trash when the bees attacked.
