One person suffered life-threatening injuries after a bee attack in the southwest valley Thursday morning, the Clark County Fire Department said.
In a statement, the department said it responded around 9:15 a.m.to a report of a bee sting attack at the corner of Colored Wind Avenue and Wispy Winds Street.
Possibly three exterminators were working to remove bees from a home near Grand Canyon Drive and West Oquendo Road, public information officer Stacey Welling said. One of the exterminators, who was not wearing protective clothing, was stung hundreds of times, she said.
Two Clark County firefighters put on protective equipment, pulled the sting victim out of the area and delivered medical care. The victim was taken to Southern Hills Hospital Medical Center with life-threatening injuries, Welling said.
The other exterminators were wearing protective clothing. No other injuries were reported.
