VALLE VISTA, Arizona — A man who was stung hundreds of times in a bee attack in western Arizona has died.

The Mohave County Sheriff's Office confirmed Friday that the man died Sunday at a hospital in Kingman.

Authorities say the man was watching a property in Valle Vista, a community about 14 miles northeast of Kingman, June 12 when he was attacked by a swarm of Africanized bees.

He was stung between 500 and 1,000 times.

Family friend Betty Crippin told the newspaper that Wade had suffered a heart attack after the attack.
