A security guard believed to be in his late twenty’s, early thirties is in a critical condition after losing control of his vehicle on Belladona Plant and crashing it into a tree. The impact into the tree dislodges a bee hive which sent hundreds of bees into the air. 

The guard started to be stung straight away while still in his vehicle. The patient got out of his vehicle and ran towards a river that was situated close by. He laid face down trying to get away from the stings of the bees. ER24 paramedics arrived on the scene and saw what was happening, they covered themselves up with enough clothing and used a blanket to try and protect themselves. They got to the patient who was still been stung and placed him on a specialised board before carrying him out of the river.
 
Once out of danger he was assessed inside the ambulance and found that he had suffered enormous amounts of stings to his body. Advanced Life Support intervention was performed and the patient was transported to Mediclinic Nelspruit in a critical condition as he was starting to have a reaction from all the stings.
 
It is believed that the security guard lost control of his vehicle on a bend as the road were wet from the rain that night causing him to crash into the tree. The local authorities were called to the scene to see how they could get rid of the bee hive as it’s in a built up residential area.
