(CBS/AP) An 81-year-old Florida woman is in critical condition after being stung several hundred times by yellow jacket wasps from an underground nest in her yard.
Juanita Foshee, of Lakeland, was in the backyard of her Lakeland home Saturday evening when she was attacked. Her family says she was able to get inside the home and call her son.
A Lakeland Regional emergency doctor estimates she was stung more than 1,000 times. Her husband says her liver and kidneys are being affected by poison she received from the stings.
Foshee remains in the intensive care unit at Lakeland Regional Medical Center.
Her family says it is unclear if she will recover.
