A swarm of 7,000 bees converged outside the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences Medical Center in Little Rock Monday afternoon, shutting down some emergency room operations for about two hours. A hospital spokesperson tells KNWA ambulances were diverted to other hospitals, but the emergency room still took walk-ins. A beekeeper was called in to remove the hive and the emergency room was back to business as usual by about 2 p.m. Monday. UAMS Spokeswoman Leslie Taylor says the beekeeper told her the queen of a nearby hive left her original home because it was overcrowded, and when she left, thousands of other bees followed suit. No one was stung, and the bees were removed without incident.
