WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - New Castle County officials say a picnic turned painful for a dozen children who were stung by wasps during an outing by about 200 summer campers at a local park.

Authorities say three children visiting Rockwood Park were treated at nearby A.I. duPont/Nemours Children’s Hospital and released, while nine others were treated on site Wednesday by county paramedics.

County workers cordoned off the area with caution tape and monitored the wasp nest pending the arrival of an exterminator.

County executive Tom Gordon said officials were planning to bring ice cream to the children on Friday.
