LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Las Vegas exterminator who was stung by bees hundreds of times has died weeks after the attack.
The Clark County coroner’s office confirmed Monday that 49-year-old Jose Moreno Pacheco died Aug. 18 at a hospital.
County spokeswoman Stacey Welling says Pacheco wasn’t wearing protective clothing as he removed bees from a home on Aug. 4. Other exterminators were wearing protective clothing at the time and weren’t injured.
Firefighters in special gear pulled him out of the swarm and took him to a hospital.
It’s unclear what kind of bees attacked Pacheco.
