    Woman hospitalized after attack by bees

Sunday, August 21, 2000

A swarm of suspected "killer" bees attacked a Twentynine Palms woman in her back yard and left her hospitalized in serious condition with more than 100 stings, authorities said.

Mary Vezina, 65, was described as stable Sunday in the intensive-care unit at Hi-Desert Medical Center, a nursing supervisor said.

Bees taken from a hive beneath a shed in Vezina's back yard were being tested to see if they were Africanized honeybees.

San Bernardino County sheriff's deputies were dispatched to the woman's home after receiving a call at 9:49 a.m. Saturday that Vezina was trapped in her back yard, the department said.
