Africanized bees kill mother of 8
CANE GROVE, Guyana — A mother of eight has died in the South American country of Guyana after she was attacked by a swarm of Africanized bees.
Police said Friday that Munia Sanchara, 47, was attacked while picking mangoes from a tree at her house in the coastal community of Cane Grove.
Police said she was declared dead after arriving at a hospital in the capital of Georgetown.
Guyana has reported several fatal bee attacks in recent years.
Africanized bees from South Africa were introduced to Brazil in the late 1950s for a crossbreeding program and some accidentally were let loose.
