38 sent to hospital after bee attack at Ngee Ann Poly‎, Singapore - 16th Nov 2011

Ngee Ann Polytechnic students participating in a sports and wellness class this morning were sent fleeing from the field when bees in a hive on a tree attacked them.

The students said they had been playing sports such as netball and soccer in the field when they heard cries for them to take cover.

'When I heard it I just ran. I was scared I could hear bees buzzing,' said a year one student who was playing soccer.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force arrived to deal with the incident, which happened at about 8.30am. Source
