Man, 89, Dies Weeks After Bee Swarm

An 89-year-old man who was attacked by a swarm of more than 300 bees while mowing the lawn has died.

The Tarrant County Medical Examiner's Office ruled the death of Audie Herriott an accident caused by complications from bee stings. Herriott died at a Lewisville nursing home late Sunday.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported that Herriott's wife found him on the porch May 2 after he was attacked by bees outside his home in Hamilton, about 115 miles south of Fort Worth.

Herriott had managed to get of his riding mower and walk to the house.
