Bee swarm attacks children at Pittsburgh school

PITTSBURGH, July 3 (UPI) -- Children attending a summer program at a Pittsburgh school were attacked by a swarm of bees during recess.

A number of children at the Summer Dreamers camp at the Carmalt Academy of Science and Technology were stung Tuesday, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported. Ebony Pugh said a doctor and two crews of paramedics responded to the school and treated the children, with none suffering serious reactions.

The area around the baseball field's backstop was cordoned off. Pugh said workers would determine if hives in the area needed to be removed.

While most people stung by bees endure only a few minutes of pain, the stings can cause serious and even fatal allergic reactions.

Kaleb Ewing, 7, one of the children who was stung, showed off a red mark on his arm.

"It was like a pinch," he said. "I'm OK."
