According to reports, the bees stung Roberts hundreds of times, all over his body.
Kenneth Roy LaFavers, a 77-year-old resident of Breckenridge, Texas, ran into a swarm of bees on Friday and was hospitalized in serious condition.
According to Breckenridge Fire Chief Calvin Chaney, LaFavers was also mowing his lawn when “highly aggressive bees” attacked him.
Africanized bees refer to a hybrid insect that was created by an African honey bee breeding with European honey bees, according to a report from Texas A&M University.
