As many as 100,000 honeybees attacked a beekeeper Saturday afternoon, stinging him 100 times and then swarming around the neighborhood near Weber State University.

Tom Price, 76, was in his garage with his son taking honey out of one of the hives he keeps in his back yard when the bees attacked about 2 p.m.The bees stung him despite his full protective gear.

Ogden fire paramedic Casey Anderson said rescuers found bees swarming all around the house when they arrived. Firefighters had to wear full firefighting gear, including breathing apparatus, to rescue Price. Some neighbors were stung but none seriously, a fire captain said.

Price was treated at McKay-Dee Hospital and released.
