Fargo man killed by more than 1,000 bee stings in Arizona park


A 23-year-old Fargo man who set out for a peaceful hike in an Arizona park died after being stung by more than 1,000 bees, a swarm so threatening it thwarted rescuers' repeated attempts to reach him.

Alex Bestler visited Usery Mountain Park with a friend on Thursday and was hiking the Merkle Trail when the unprovoked attack occurred, the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office said in a news release.

It is unclear whether Bestler was allergic to bees. His Facebook page says he was raised in Elton, La., but has since moved to Fargo.
