A spokeswoman for Valley Baptist Medical Center in Harlingen says 76-year-old Tiburcio Ramirez of San Benito was in good condition Friday.
The victim's daughter, Claina Gonzalez, told the Valley Morning Star that Ramirez was attacked Thursday morning. Officials estimate the man was stung at least 220 times. Emergency personnel used soapy water on Ramirez to help get rid of the bees before transporting him to a hospital.
Gonzalez says her mother was stung dozens of times trying to help. She declined treatment. Gonzalez says the family dog died of bee stings in the same attack.
