WACO: A hive of 40,000 Africanised honey bees, known as “killer bees”, have killed a Central Texas man and hurt a woman who came to his aid. The Waco Tribune-Herald reported that Larry Goodwin was attacked as he drove a tractor on a neighbour’s land in Moody, about 26 miles (41km) south of Waco. The 62-year-old ran to a house about 50 yards (46 metres) away and tried to use a garden hose to ward off the swarm, according to McLennan County Chief Sheriff’s Deputy Matt Cawthon. A woman came out to help and was also stung. Mr Goodwin was pronounced dead at the scene. “If anybody has any brush or anything on their lands please clear it because they don’t want to go through this.–SN
