One adult, five children stung by swarm of bees


One adult and five children were injured after they were stung several times by a swarm of bees in the Free State on Saturday morning.

According to ER24, the victims were stung while on a school outing. A fellow teacher then transported them to the N5 between Kestell and Bethlehem where ER24 paramedics met up with them.

The adult was found to be in a serious condition while two of the kids had sustained moderate injuries and three more sustained minor injuries. The kids are believed to be between the ages of 6 and 12 years old.

Paramedics treated and stabilised the patients before transporting them to Mediclinic Hoogland for further medical care.
