Two men and a woman were left with multiple bee sting injuries at an old age home in Musgrave, KwaZulu Natal.

ER24 paramedics, as well as other services, arrived on scene and were ushered to the patients.

On assessment, paramedics found that two men and a woman had sustained multiple bee stings over most of their bodies.

It is understood that the patients were sitting outside when they were apparently attacked by the swarm of bees.

Paramedics treated the patients for their injuries and thereafter transported them to Entabeni Hospital for further treatment.
