Central Texas man stung to death by bees

WACO, Texas — A 68-year-old Central Texas man is dead after he was attacked by a swarm of bees while riding a lawn mower on his rural property. Authorities say Donald Williams was mowing grass late Friday morning when he was attacked at his rural property about 8 miles northwest of Waco. McLennan County Sheriff Parnell McNamara says when the man’s wife looked outside when the lawn mower motor stopped, she saw her husband lying on the ground covered in bees. The woman rushed to her husband and was stung multiple times herself. Both were taken to Baylor Scott & White Hillcrest Medical Center in Waco, where Williams died. McNamara said Williams’ wife is expected to recover. The sheriff said the bees apparently came from hives Williams maintained on his property.  AP
