Women injured in Phoenix and Tucson bee attacks

Women in Tucson and Phoenix are recovering after being stung by swarms of bees in separate incidents.

Phoenix Fire Department officials say a woman was hospitalized in serious condition after she was attacked by a swarm of bees Thursday morning near Thomas Road and 44th Street.

Landscapers sprayed water on the woman in an attempt to help and firefighters treated the woman for multiple stings before she was taken to an emergency room.
