IDALOU, TX (KCBD) – A bee swarm attacked at least four people in Idalou. 

A 7-year-old boy was injured so badly that AeroCare was dispatched to the scene. Authorities think he may have been allergic to bee stings. 

The boy and three others were taken to University Medical Center. At least one person was stung more than 50 times. An 11-year-old girl was also stung many times. 

The Idalou Fire Department used special foam on the bee hive to get rid of them. The incident was near the corner of 2nd & Walnut Streets in Idalou. The Idalou Police Chief tells KCBD NewsChannel 11 that he does not know if the bees were Africanized or "killer bees".
