A massive swarm of Africanized bees killed a man doing landscaping work in southern Arizona Wednesday and sent others to the hospital.
The attack happened in Douglas, Arizona, when landscapers accidentally disturbed a colony in the attic of a home with noise from a lawnmower. The colony was home to an estimated 800,000 bees. (Video via KNXV)
Firefighters used foam and pesticides to fight the swarm before they were ultimately able to remove the hive — which an exterminator said could have been there for as many as 10 years. (Video via KOLD)
