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.
