LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Clark County officials on Monday reported a worker who was stung numerous times by bees in the southwest Valley on Aug. 4 has died.

Jose Moreno Pacheco, 49, of Las Vegas, was pronounced dead at a hospital on Aug. 18.

The Clark County Coroner’s Office is investigating the death. It’s expected the investigation will take up to eight weeks to complete.

About 9 a.m. on Aug. 4, exterminators, who were in the employ of an unlicensed business, were working to remove bees from a home located near Grand Canyon Drive and West Oquendo Road.

Pacheco, who was not wearing protective gear, was stung hundreds of times. He was taken to Southern Hills Hospital.

There were no other injuries reported.
