PHOENIX (CBS5) -

A landscaper was severely stung by bees as he started working near Seventh Avenue and Loop 101 Monday morning.

Co-workers rushed over and quickly put him inside their vehicle. 

The landscaper was wearing a long-sleeved shirt and pants but was stung many times in the face, said rescuers from the Phoenix Fire Department.

No one else was stung.

The victim of the attack was allergic to bees and he was barely breathing as first responders arrived.

Medical personnel began treating the landscaper for shock and rushed him to the hospital.

His current condition is not known.
