Bee attack in Turkey; 20 hospitalized
An official says a van stacked with beehives has crashed into a truck, killing one person and causing the bees to swarm and attack five injured crash victims and their rescuers, AP reported.
The state-run Anatolia news agency says around 20 people, including medics and police officers who responded to the accident, are being treated in hospitals.
Gov. Ahmet Altinparmak said the accident occurred Monday on a road near the Mediterranean resort of Marmaris.
The private Dogan news agency said beekeepers were rushed in to help rescue the victims.
Dogan video footage showed men in beekeeping clothing placing an injured man on a stretcher amid a swarm of bees.
