Woman attacked by bees after hives fall on her head

Awoman was attacked by bees this Monday in Tempe, Arizona, USA, when a hive fell on her head, the Associated Press reports. The victim had gone to fetch her child from nursery school and was passing under a tree when a gust of wind blew the hive. 

Andrea Glass, a Tempe firefighter, says the woman was bitten 20-30 times by bees. The woman was evaluated on the spot, but preferred to be taken by her husband to the hospital.

The firefighters ended up spraying the hive with foam because of its proximity to kindergarten and a school.
