Back page: Man stung 400 times by bees at baseball game

ST. GEORGE, Utah — An 89-year-old Utah man says he feels lucky to be alive after being stung nearly 400 times during a bee attack at a baseball game. Jay Francis of Bountiful said he’s now doing better at home after being rushed to the hospital for treatment Friday. “First it was one, then two, then three. Then they were everywhere,” he told the Deseret News newspaper of Salt Lake City. “It was just horrible. My head started aching. I can’t believe how sensitive it was.” His son, Kevin, ran to help after seeing his father being attacked. “His face was just covered in bees. You saw his eyes and his mouth … It was like a bee swarm out of Alfred Hitchcock movie.” Both he and his mother were each stung a few dozen times. The attack prompted players and spectators to flee, witnesses said.
