TUCSON, Ariz. —  One person is dead and several others are recovering from bee stings after a huge swarm of about 300,000 bees attacked landscapers working outside a home in Douglas (Ariz.), TucsonNewsNow.com reports.

Firefighters got the call for help at around 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday.  Crews responded to a home in the 1700 block of 21st Street to find several people stung by bees. At least two of the victims had to be taken to the hospital.

A 32-year-old landscaper went into cardiac arrest after he was stung hundreds of times, according to witnesses at the scene.

Douglas Fire Chief Mario Novoa said a total of seven people were stung.  Four were landscapers with a group called Douglas ARC, which works with citizens who have developmental disabilities, and put them to work on landscaping projects around town, said Novoa.
