March 24, 2013|By Lauren Williams

A swarm of bees attacked three workers at a golf course in Costa Mesa, authorities said Sunday.

Responding firefighters used foam to disperse the bees that attacked the workers who were suspended in a lift about 40 to 50 feet above the ground to work on a tower, according to the fire department. The incident occurred at about 2:30 p.m.

The workers suffered multiple bee stings. They were treated and taken to a hospital. 

A bee company crew responded to the scene and was able to spray the hive using a ladder.
