2 boys attacked by killer bees

What was supposed to be a typical afternoon playing, took a horrible turn when killer bees attacked two brothers. Yesterday four year old Enrique Thiessen and his brother, five year old Pedro Thiessen, were playing in their yard at Camp 70, near Little Belize, when they were swarmed by the bees. The toddlers yelled for help and that was when their father Jacobo Thiessen, along with a neighbor, tried to get the kids to safety. They too were stung to the arms and head. Sadly, four year old Enrique did not survive the attack. He received more than five hundred bee stings. His brother, Pedro was stung to the face, head, arms and stomach. He remains hospitalized. Doctors say he is stabilized, but his condition is still critical.
