About 17 children were injured on Monday, when bees attacked them at a school in Umkomaas in Kwazulu-Natal, paramedics said.
ER 24 spokesperson Russel Meiring said the swarm of bees attacked the children at a school on old Main Road.
He said paramedics arrived to find several children waiting in a classroom.
He said in a statement that paramedics assessed the children and found that 17, aged between 7 and 10 had sustained numerous bee stings.
ENCA reports that the children were treated on scene and then taken to various hospitals for further medical care.
Meiring said some children had been transported privately, before paramedics arrived.
