Six people were attacked by a swarm of bees while mowing a lawn in Ballito, north of Durban, on Thursday morning.

IPSS Medical Rescue and Lenmed paramedics were on the scene stabilising two of the six people, who required advanced life support.

“Six people were stung with two of them being critical and requiring advanced life support intervention,” he said.

“Paramedics are stabilising the men who will be transported to hospital for further care.”
