Teens treated for multiple stings
A pair of Galveston teenagers was treated for multiple bee stings, after being attacked in a neighborhood in the 7000 block of Sycamore.
A 13-year old victim was stung 35 times and required medical treatment. Firefighters who responded to the scene were forced to don bee suits to protect themselves.
Neighbors say a homeowner was keeping the bees to collect honey. A spokesperson for the city of Galveston says the homeowner will not be cited for the attack, because there is no ordinance prohibiting beekeeping in a residential neighborhood.
