A swarm of bees descended on a group of young children who were on a field trip to a "bunny park" near Johannesburg on Friday. The children were waiting to be loaded onto their school bus after visiting the park when they were attacked by the angry bees.
"They were waiting for a bus when things went drastically wrong. A swarm of bees came out of nowhere and attacked the children," a spokesman for the emergency response team told reporters. Four of the children were critically injured by the bees. The children ranged in age from 2 to 6.
The bees involved were not "killer bees" however, simply regular honey bees that had become agitated by the children. Or perhaps the bees were standing up for the bunnies of bunny park, who, according to many customer reviews, appear to be in poor shape.
