The man was hospitalized in stable condition Wednesday night. An earlier report indicated he was treated and released, but the man's daughter confirmed to NBC4 that he remained hospitalized Thursday morning in Torrance.
Authorities said they could not confirm whether the bees are Africanized bees, but said it is likely.
The bees were agitated by a fumigator that was trying to exterminate the hive in an apartment roof nearby, police said. The man was walking in the 1700 block of Ruxton Lane when he was attacked.
