Hundreds Of Hornets Sting Boy

By Compiled From Wire Services

An 11-year-old boy trying to climb a hedge in his backyard disturbed a football-sized hornets’ nest and was stung hundreds of times.

Casey Jones was hospitalized in serious condition after being attacked Saturday.

“I heard him scream,” neighbor Danny Askinas said. “I ran into our yard and there were about a thousand hornets around him … all over his body, from head to toe.”

The boy jumped into a pool and began removing his clothes to get the insects off, Askinas said.

The doctor who treated Casey found close to 500 stings on his body, Askinas said.
