Dougherty County- A Dougherty County man died this afternoon from an attack by tens of thousands of honey bees.

Seventy-three year old Curtis Davis was on a bulldozer on some property on Williamsburg Road in Southeast Dougherty County when he bumped a wooden porch post where bees had built a huge hive.

They swarmed the cab of the bulldozer and Davis was stung hundreds of times.

He was rushed to a hospital where he died.

A beekeeper was called in to exterminate the bees so the bulldozer, which was still running, could be removed from the area.

Firefighters, who were called in to spray the insects so that paramedics could get to the victim, were stung as well.
