Four California men were hospitalized Thursday after being attacked by a swarm of bees in Santa Ana, according to the Orange County Register.

The attack forced the evacuation of a city block, and one of the victims was a man in a wheelchair who was stung more than 60 times according to the report. The story says a bee-removal team collected a hive that was estimated to hold 60,000 bees.
