Twenty People Stung After Thousands of Bees Swarm Cerritos Park
A massive swarm of bees attacked picnickers at a suburban park early Saturday evening, stinging more than twenty people and sending three to the hospital. The besieged group was gathered for a family reunion, according to CBS LA. As if a family reunion alone wasn't stressful enough.
The swarm was reported just after 5 p.m. by the tennis courts at Cerritos Regional Park, according to City News Service.
"It was thousands [of bees]. This whole grass field was covered with bees. They were chasing a hundred people," a witness told CBS LA. "It was just so crazy," another witness told CBS.
