(NEWSER) – One worker died from at least 100 stings and three others were injured when bees from an 800,000-strong swarm attacked a landscape crew outside a home in Douglas, Ariz., yesterday.

Firefighters discovered and destroyed a huge 3-by-8-foot hive, believed to be around 10 years old, in the home's attic, reports Tucson News Now. The 90-year-old homeowner wasn't injured, but one other worker from Douglas ARC, a nonprofit group that finds jobs for people with developmental disabilities, is in critical condition.
