4 hospitalized after being stung by bees at prison

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — South Florida officials say four people have been hospitalized after being stung by bees inside a women's prison.

At least eight others, including guards and inmates, were treated Wednesday evening after being stung at the Broward Correctional Institution.

Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue spokesman Mike Jachles says an inmate reportedly stepped on a nest in a recreation yard and caused the hive to attack.

Jachles said it was unclear what type of bees attacked the prison.
