Swarm of Bees Shuts Down Little Rock Emergency Room

LITTLE ROCK, AR - A swarm of bees clustered outside University Hospital in Little Rock shut down some emergency room operations for a time yesterday.

Ambulances were diverted to other hospitals but the emergency room still took walk-ins.

Beekeeper Harvey Johnston removed the hive and the emergency room was back to normal and accepting ambulance traffic at about 2 p.m.
