PHOENIX -- Women in Tucson and Phoenix are recovering after being stung by swarms of bees in separate incidents.

Phoenix Fire Department officials say a woman was hospitalized in serious condition after she was attacked by a swarm of bees Thursday morning near Thomas Road and 44th Street.

Landscapers sprayed water on the woman in an attempt to help and firefighters treated the woman for multiple stings before she was taken to an emergency room.

In Tucson on Thursday afternoon, a woman walking past an east-side amusement park on Tanque Verde Road was stung by more than a hundred bees.

Firefighters donned bee suits and used foam and water to get the bees off the woman.

Paramedics treated the woman before taking her to a hospital, where she's listed in stable condition.
