Authorities say they believe a South Texas man drowned after a swarm of bees forced him into a canal. Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Trevino says 51-year-old Emiterio Garcia was fishing with a 43-year-old friend Roberto Galvan on Tuesday night when the bees attacked. Galvan was able to reach the shelter of the vehicle of a passing motorist, but Garcia either jumped or fell into the canal.

The Monitor of McAllen reports in its online edition that an autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday to determine whether Garcia died from bee stings or drowning.
