PALMDALE (CNS) – Dozens of students were stung by a swarm of bees that
descended today on Palmdale High School, sending at least 50 of them to
hospitals for evaluation and prompting a partial evacuation of the campus, the
Los Angeles County Fire Department reported.
Paramedics were sent to the campus in the 2100 block of East Avenue R
about 12:10 p.m., a dispatcher said.
The total number of students who were stung was not immediately available.
The dispatcher said there were no reports of anyone going into shock.
Firefighters used water hoses in an effort to disperse the bees, which
apparently became agitated when a hive was disturbed. A parent said the hive was disturbed when a teen threw at apple at it.
