VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WTVR) -- A Virginia Beach mother is grieving the death of her son after he was attacked by a swarm of killer bees in Texas.

Sonja Turner told WTKR that her son Aaron Turner died after the attack on Tuesday morning.

Turner said that the 30-year-old was working for a fencing company in San Antonio when the attack happened.

"They hit a bees nest and a swarm of bees came up like a big old fire,” Sonja Turner said. “Aaron ran into where they were coming from -- all he could do was fall to his knees."

Turner graduated from Ocean Lakes High School in Virginia Beach and moved to Texas with dreams of becoming a pro football player. His mother said he had a football scholarship and had played for arena teams in Texas.

Tuner said that her son meant the world to her and that she is still coming to terms with the news.

"It was unbelievable. All I could do was drop the phone and scream and holler, ‘Not my child,’” Turner said. “I can’t eat... All I can think about is my son lying there with a thousand bees on him.”

The family is in the process of planning Turner's funeral.

    It is sad that so many bees had to give up their bee lives. for just one superblacknaught.

      Sounds like you must be a conservative based on this particular comment. And you guys still wonder why it’s always YOU who are depicted as racist. This is why Obama is in his second term in office. It’s also a great thing that you guys are paying for Obamacare too. The harder Obama makes your life and takes money out of your pocket with endless taxes, the better.

    Really!!! He was working not trying to steal honey.. Idiot’s always make dumb comments.. My prayers go out to his family.

    Maybe we should point the rayist bees in the direction of the section Ape welfare naggers!

    • JP Anderson

      So you must be a rhesus monkey? If you don’t know what that is, look it up. It’s a great thing that money comes out of your pocket to house, clothed and feed those “naggers” on section 8 too. Obama is going to MAKE you keep paying too. Hahaha

  • Rose Marie

    It’s one dead nagger, it’s not like we are running short on naggers. Whats the fuss?

    • Dale

      You are sick in the head…..let’s hope you don’t ever lose a Son… ought to be ashamed of what you wrote

    • JP Anderson

      There’s many more out there that YOU WILL continue to support financially too. You and Gibs are actually the same person I see.

  • Dale

    This is so sad that he died…..what is wrong with you people making racist comments like that…..this was a person that died……a Son….whose Mother is heartbroken over the death of him…..there is a special place in Hell for y’all that made the racist comments
    … condolences to his Family and May Jesus bring them peace during this difficult time
