A 6-year old boy was hospitalized Sunday morning after suffering extensive bee stings on a popular hiking trail, Pima County Sheriff's deputy Tom Peine told Tucson News Now.

Peine said the boy is stable as of Sunday evening at 5:30 p.m. He was stung more than a hundred times.

"Three of the victims were sitting on a rock... the father had the 6-year-old in his lap, trying to protect his face from the bees," said Robert Raterink, a Pima County Sheriff's Search and Rescue spokesman.
