A 35-year old man died Thursday after being stung by bees, according to local media reports.
The deceased has been identified as Nicholas Shepherd of Marchfield Close, St Philip.
The father of one is reported to have ventured a short distance from his home to pick some mangoes, unaware that the fruit tree was home to a massive beehive.
The bees chased him all the way to his neighbour’s backyard, where he made an unsuccessful attempt to wash the insects off at a tap.
The incident occurred some time before 1. pm.
