A Tucson woman is recovering after she was attacked by a swarm of bees.

Tucson Fire Department Capt. Trish Tracy said the woman was walking her dogs in a wash on Monday when she came across the bee swarm. 

The woman and her dogs ran to a nearby home, where the residents found her covered in bees. 

Firefighters responded minutes later and found five people had been stung. Crews sprayed foam on the bees while paramedics transported the woman to an area hospital.  The woman is expected to survive, but was treated for serious injuries.
