BENONI, SOUTH AFRICA (BNO NEWS) -- More than 40 young children were injured and transported to area hospitals after a swarm of bees attacked them at a park in the northeastern region of South Africa, paramedics said on late Friday. Four of the children were critically injured.

The freak incident happened at around 3:30 p.m. local time on Friday when 80 children from a pre-primary school were waiting to board their bus after visiting a bunny park in Benoni, a city on the East Rand in Gauteng province. All of the children were between the ages of 2 and 6.

"They were waiting for a bus when things went drastically wrong. A swarm of bees came out of nowhere and attacked the children," said Chris Botha, a spokesman for ambulance service Netcare 911. The incident sparked a large emergency response with ambulances from across the region being sent to the scene.

That's very sad and unfortunate. It could be that the bees' hive was underground and they felt the hive was threatened.
