Man Falls To Death Trying To Escape Bee Attack
A US hiker has died after he fell 150ft off a cliff when he was trying to escape being attacked by a swarm of bees.
The man was pronounced dead at the scene in the Echo Canyon area of Camelback Mountain in Phoenix, Arizona.
Two other hikers were airlifted out after each was stung about 300 times.
Paramedics said both men had been taken to hospital in a serious but stable condition and were expected to recover.
Fire officials said the three men had been attacked by bees on a trail near Ice Box Canyon.
The two survivors hid in a small crevice to avoid the swarm until rescuers arrived.
Some of the rescue workers wore white protective suits to keep them from also being stung.
