    NBC 5 News
    A swarm of bees attacked a North Texas woman near Possum Kingdom Lake, and she has now died from injuries from the attack.

    The North Texas woman attacked by a swarm of bees has died.

    Nancy Whitehead rushed to help her husband, Stanley Whitehead, when he disturbed a bee hive underneath a piece of Styrofoam behind the Possum Kingdom Chamber of Commerce near Possum Kingdom Lake on Sept. 19.

    Whitehead's son said that his mother suffered from diabetes and other underlying health problems which were complicated by the stings.  According to her husband, Whitehead was also allergic to killer bees.

    Nancy was stung over 200 times and was in critical condition at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital in Fort Worth.

    She died from her injuries.
