Bees attacked a Direct TV worker Wednesday afternoon in Maricopa, sending him to the hospital. It's the second of two bee incidents this week.
A Direct TV worker was doing a house call at a mobile home near Honeycutt and Porter Road when he was attacked.
The Maricopa Fire Department responded to the scene and sprayed foam on the bees, killing many of them.
Firefighters believe the bees are living under the mobile home, in the walls, or along the roof. A beekeeper was called in to eradicate them.
The cable guy apparently noticed the bees this afternoon and sprayed them, and that's when a swarm of angry bees came after him. He hid under a mattress in front of the home.
The adult children of the woman who lives there came out to help him and were stung in the process. The worker was stung at least 100 times, and the others were stung dozens of times. They were also sent to the hospital.
Firefighters say a bee attack is not very common in Maricopa. They said it was the first time this year where someone's been stung by a swarm of bees.
Monday, a hiker was killed on Camelback Mountain when he fell while trying to fend off a bee attack.
So far this year, Banner Good Samaritan Poison Center has seen 387 bee sting cases in Maricopa County. If you encounter any bees, don't try to aggravate them, just stay away and call 911 if you're concerned for your safety.
