As the weather warms up, you have to stay on your toes while out looking for bigfoot. There's all kinds of danger out there in the wild. Here's a recent tragedy where a hiker got killed by a swarm of bees.
A 23-year-old man was killed on a hike in Usery Mountain Park in Mesa, Arizona, after he was attacked by a massive swarm of bees, reported the Arizona Republic Friday. Officials said that a medical exam revealed the Louisiana man was stung by more than 1,000 bees.
The incident played out Thursday morning as the 23-year-old man, Alex Bestler, hiked with his friend Sonya, the Republic reported. The bees apparently appeared without warning. Bestler's friend escaped safely to a bathroom close by, but the 23-year-old was engulfed by the swarm of bees before he could make his way to shelter, officials said.
A hiker and park employees attempted to approach Bestler — who was lying on the ground overtaken by the bees — but the swarm was so aggressive it forced them to stay back, the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office said.
