CLE ELUM, Wash. (AP) - Officials say a 60-year-old from North Bend man has died after being stung multiple times by hornets.

The Kittitas County Sheriff’s Office says 60-year-old Warren Brown collapsed while cutting firewood at a campsite Friday afternoon about eight miles south of Cle Elum.

People at the campsite told deputies that Brown accidentally disturbed a hornet’s nest while cutting firewood and was stung multiple times. The Seattle Times reports (https://goo.gl/LqqHxF) the man had an allergic reaction to the stings and did not have an EpiPen.

Efforts by his friends responding medical personnel were unsuccessful.
