A nine-year-old boy along with his father, 35-year-old Royon Ferrerie and 49-year-old cane harvester Henchand Madray were attacked by a swarm of bees near the Rose Hall town primary school in Region Six (East Berbice- Corentyne) on Friday.
A swarm of bees emerged from an open lot that was opposite the primary school and attacked the passersby, according to a police report.

They were all admitted for observation in a serious but stable condition. Though Ferrerie and Hemchand were treated and sent away, the boy has been referred to the New Amsterdam Hospital for further treatment.
