Chandler, AZ (September 15, 2019) – Officials from the Phoenix Fire Department said five people were attacked by bees at the Chandler Fashion Center on Saturday afternoon.
One of the injured was a 6-month-old baby who was stung several times. A spokesman with Chandler Fire says that their crews found the hive and were working to keep the bees contained. The hive was located in the Macy’s parking lot, where most of the victims were stung.
Chandler paramedics responded to the scene and transported the 6-month-old to the hospital via ambulance. EMTs did not say if the other injured individuals were hospitalized and did not reveal the identities of those involved.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recoveries.
Contrary to popular belief, personal injury isn’t limited to car wrecks. Personal injury describes any physical injury, emotional or mental distress after an accident caused by the negligent actions of another party. For example, premises liability comes into play if you are critically injured due to unsafe conditions on another party’s property.
If you’ve been injured as a result of the negligent actions of an individual or company, you may have to deal with medical bills, insurance companies, and emotional trauma. However, you can contact a personal injury lawyer to seek the justice and fair compensation you deserve after an accident.
ELG Law’s liability attorneys have years of experience when it comes to seeking the justice and fair compensation that victims deserve after these incidents. Contact our accident attorneys today at (623) 562-3838 to schedule your free consultation.
