KPNX – PHOENIX (KPNX) - Ambushed by bees, an Arizona boy is healing at Phoenix Children's Hospital after one of the most terrifying moments of his life.

Andrew Kunz's family says the attack also sent at least three emergency responders to the hospital. Stung nearly 400 times and allergic to bees, they say it's a miracle he's alive.

"It felt like 400 bullets were shooting me," Andrew said, after being stung.

The 11-year-old was playing with his BB gun on Monday near his Safford home, when he unknowingly shot at a hive of Africanized bees.

"I tried to run," Andrew said.

But he couldn't really remember what happened after that.
