LAS VEGAS (AP) - A Las Vegas exterminator who was stung by bees hundreds of times has died weeks after the attack.

The Clark County coroner’s office confirmed Monday that 49-year-old Jose Moreno Pacheco died Aug. 18 at a hospital.

County spokeswoman Stacey Welling says Pacheco wasn’t wearing protective clothing as he removed bees from a home on Aug. 4. Other exterminators were wearing protective clothing at the time and weren’t injured.

Firefighters in special gear pulled him out of the swarm and took him to a hospital.

It’s unclear what kind of bees attacked Pacheco.
