There was a stinging surprise near the entrance to Picnic Island Park in Port Tampa. Two Tampa city Parks and Recreation workers uncovered thousands of bees as they used a front-end loader to remove an old bench and a tire.

"There was so many, that I don't know what to do. I freak out. The first time in two years I got afraid" said David Zeledon, one of those attacked.

Zeledon says, he and his partner Rodney Pugh ran for cover as the bees attacked. "I just run, and I screamed his name, Ronnie Ronnie run! and I run. But so many I fall twice" said Zeledon.

The men were loading debris into a pick-up truck. Hours after the attack, we found dead and slow-moving bees still crawling around. David ran into the woods, hoping the brush would knock off some of the stinging insects.
