Cape Town – A swarm of bees stung two men to death in the Western Cape town of Malmesbury on Thursday night.

The homeless men ran away from the frenzied swarm of bees and both collapsed in front of shocked bystanders outside the Spur restaurant in Rainier Street at about 18:00.

Restaurant patrons who were having dinner called the Spur manager, who then called the police and an ambulance, said Duelinda Chetty, a Spur waitress.

Ran for 500 metres

Malmesbury police spokesperson Constable Hennie du Randt said the deceased were identified as Johannes van Nieuwenhuize and Dirk Beneke.

Their ages were not known, but they were estimated to be in their late thirties or early forties.
