Angry bees follow woman into ambulance
Pretoria - A 50-year-old Pretoria woman was rushed to hospital on Tuesday after she was attacked by a swarm of bees while gardening, paramedics said.
Netcare 911 spokesperson Jeff Wicks said the woman was taken to the Mamelodi day hospital in a critical but stable condition. She had been stung at least 50 times.
"The cause of the incident and the series of events leading up to it remain unclear."
Wicks said paramedics who attended to the woman had to ward off the bees at her house near Tsomo Drive in Mamelodi East.
Some of the bees followed her into the ambulance and had to be removed from the vehicle before the woman could be taken to hospital.
