    Tucson rock climber died from bee attack


    TUCSON, May 9 (UPI) -- A 55-year-old Tucson man found dead hanging from a cliff in the Santa Rita Mountains died from a huge bee attack, the Santa Cruz County medical examiner said.


    The body of Steven Johnson, an experience climber, was found Monday hanging from his equipment on Mount Hopkins, KVOA-TV, Tucson, reported. His body was covered in bee stings, and his dog was found dead at the top of the cliff.


    Santa Cruz County Sheriff's deputies had searched for Johnson after he didn't show up for work.


    "It's devastating news for the Tucson community, for sure, he was a very prolific climber in Tucson," John Mavko, who works at Rocks & Ropes, told the TV station.

    I got a distant relative of relatives of relatives who died when he ran over a hive of bees on the ground on his tractor. They swarmed him so bad he fell off the tractor and got plowed under (srs). Sounds rather Hellish to me :worried:

    that's a hard way to die.
    killer bees hit AZ a few years ago. every once in awhile they really fuck up someone's day.

    vicious little fuckers. thanks to the assholes who brought them from afica! i hope they all lived miserable lives.
