Kall (dpa / lnw) - During a walk in the forest, six elementary school students and a supervisor in the Euskirchen district suffered insect bites. A spokesman for the fire brigade said on Monday that some of them had also been stung several times. The alerted emergency services rushed with a total of five ambulances and a rescue helicopter to the elementary school in a district of the municipality of Kall, where the children are looked after during the holidays. The greatest concern at the beginning of the mission was that a severe allergic reaction would occur after the bites, the spokesman said. But this was not the case.
Two paramedics assessed the victims. After outpatient treatment in the ambulance, the children were handed over to their parents. The children had spoken of wasps that had stung them - but that was only a guess, said the spokesman for the fire brigade. He couldn't say why the bites happened. The group, which went for a walk in the nearby forest, reportedly consisted of nine children and two adults. "Nord-West-Media TV" had reported on the operation.
