ELOY, Ariz. (AP) -- Authorities say a 65-year-old man is recovering after being attacked by a swarm of bees and stung more than 100 times near Eloy.

Pinal County Sheriff's dispatch received a call about the bee attack Monday afternoon.

Dan Cecil's son says his father was attacked while operating a back hoe on his ranch, but the man wasn't allergic to bee stings.

Emergency crews rendered aid at the scene.

Cecil then was transported by Eloy Fire Ambulance to Banner Casa Grande for further medical evaluation.
