BUCKEYE, Ariz. -- A bee attack in Buckeye sent one man to the hospital Monday afternoon.

Chopper 3 was above the home where a swarm of bees went after a man and stung him as many as 20 times. The man was rushed to the hospital. There's no word on his condition. There were also some reports of neighbors being stung.

Authorities described the bees as extremely aggressive. Crews sprayed foam along the side of the house. It's not clear if the hive was in the home's attic or eaves.
