Man 73, dies after he’s stung by swarm of bees
Cochise County authorities said a man, 73, died after being stung multiple times by a swarm of bees as he and other people cleaned up scrap piles near San Simon.
According to the sheriff’s office, a deputy who encountered a speeding vehicle Friday learned that the man’s son, 43, was driving with his father in the back seat to get help.
The sheriff’s office said the deputy was stung by bees in the vehicle and had the son roll down the windows and drive a short distance to a location where they met fire department personnel. The dead man’s son, the third person and the deputy were treated for multiple stings.
