Buzz off! Bees swarm Times Square hot dog stand

NEW YORK (AP) — A swarm of bees had caused a brief commotion in Times Square in New York City after they made their home atop a hot dog stand.

It happened at 43rd Street and Broadway at about 2 p.m. Tuesday.

The New York Police Department's bee keepers unit responded to the scene and safely removed the bees.

Video of the incident shows thousands of bees crowding the top of the vendor's umbrella as a beekeeper sucks them into a hose.

In a tweet, the NYPD said that "no tourist was harmed and no bee was left behind."
