PLANTATION, Fla. - A woman in her 90s was taken to the hospital after being stung multiple times by bees, authorities said.

The incident happened Tuesday afternoon at 1420 West Campanelli Drive in Plantation.

At first police believed neighbors who came to help her were also stung, according to Plantation Fire Rescue. This was later found not true.

Fire crews were at the home using foam and water to take down the hive.

A witness said he walked outside to see his neighbor on the ground surrounded by bees.

She was responsive and taken to the hospital for treatment.
