A 73-year-old Texas man was stung more than 300 times near Medina, a small town northwest of San Antonio, Monday morning, according to the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies said a woman attempted to rescue the man, but she was also stung, the Miami Herald reported.

A woman only identified as Maria told reporters that she was doing yard work with her neighbor, left momentarily, and returned to find him completely covered in bees.

“I got closer, and there was a bunch of those ugly things. Bees.

All over him. And I run inside. I get some alcohol, and I throw a lot of alcohol on me, and I throw a lot of alcohol on him,” she told the news agency.

According to deputies, first responders had to wear protective suits to treat him, but unfortunately, he passed away from his injuries.

As of Monday, the victim’s name is being withheld pending further investigation.
