    Central Texas Man Recovers From 1,200 Bee Stings

    KYLE (September 14, 2010)—Lamar LaCaze of Kyle, who was stung more than 1,200 times in a bee attack, is recovering, although his body is still bruised.

    LaCaze said he thought he was going to die during the Aug. 31 attack, which happened as he was mowing a field. The 65-year-old barber managed to get off a tractor and used his cell phone to call his son for help. Trey LaCaze said that when he arrived his father "looked like a bee hive on his head."

    Lamar LaCaze spent a week in the hospital after emergency room personnel pulled more than 1,200 stingers from his body. Bees had even gotten into his ears, nose and mouth.

    Relatives believe the bees were living in an old water heater in the field.
