A 62-year-old man died after being stung by a swarm of wasps Monday in the mountains above Fresno, according to a Fresno County Emergency Medical Services and a sheriff’s spokesman.
Mike Bracci of Chino Hills was collecting wood about 1:30 p.m. when he came inside a cabin and reported being stung, EMS reported.
Bracci went into cardiac arrest after reporting that he was feeling lightheaded. Paramedics at the scene were unable to revive him, EMS reports said.
Sheriff’s spokesman Tony Botti said Bracci was stung by more than a dozen wasps. The coroner’s office is investigating but has yet to release a report on the cause of death, he said.
