Tanya Goodwin on dad killed by bees: "He was laying at the corner of the house and we got into him and he was already purple"

Two days after a swarm of bees killed a Texas man, on Monday evening "Piers Morgan Live" invited Tanya Goodwin to share her first-hand perspective of the bizarre occurence.

Speaking live with Piers Morgan, the daughter of the late Larry Goodwin described the moment she realized there was a problem:

"I seen an ambulance and I was wondering why the ambulance was coming," she began. "I ran down the driveway and around the street to see if I could see him anywhere by the house. And he was laying at the corner of the house and we got into him and he was already purple."

Goodwin was stung more than 1,000 times as the tractor he was riding pushed over an old chicken coop in which the Africanized bees were living.

"It was very horrible," lamented Goodwin. "He went into anaphylactic shock."

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as Goodwin reveals the injuries she and her sister and nephew received while trying to help her father.

    Before you become fearful of bees, please note that these were Africanized Bees...not standard honeybees. If you're ever chased by Africanized bees, cover your mouth and nose, as they're attracted to carbon dioxide and will attempted to fly into your mouth and nose.
