SAFETY HARBOR, Fla. (AP) - A group of tree trimmers were stung by hundreds of bees while working in Pinellas County.
The sheriff's office reports that four employees of Johnson Lawn and Landscape Service were cutting down a dead tree Saturday afternoon when the attack occurred. One of the workers, 44-year-old Ralph St. Peter, was stung as many as 150 times. He was taken to a nearby hospital, where his injuries were not considered life-threatening.
Two others were taken to the hospital, and one man was treated at the scene.
A St. Petersburg bee removal company responded to exterminate the bees.
