A couple who were out exercising their horses ended up being attacked by a swarm of 30,000 bees.
The attack took place in Pantego, Texas on an otherwise unremarkable day. Kristen Beauregard and her boyfriend had been out with their two horses when a large swarm of bees seemed to appear out of nowhere and started to sting them relentlessly. To escape the onslaught the couple jumped in to a pool and ducked down beneath the water, however every time they surfaced the bees would latch on and continue to sting.
"It got all dark, like it was night time, there were so many bees," said Beauregard. "We were trying to stand up in the water but every time we stuck our heads out for air, they would cover us and start stinging us." Her boyfriend was eventually able to call the emergency services however it was too late to save the horses, by the time help arrived one was dead and the other died the next day.
