FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts man attacked by a swarm of bees while doing yard work has died.

Alison Dahl tells The Sun Chronicle that her husband, Eric Dahl, was blowing leaves from the lawn of their Foxboro home on Saturday afternoon when he was swarmed by bees.

She says her 48-year-old husband was taken by ambulance to Norwood Hospital where he later died of what was believed to have been a heart attack.

His wife says Dahl was in excellent health and had run six miles earlier in the day. He had no bee sting allergies and had been stung before with no ill effects.
