An employee of the Parish Council of Santo António da Serra, was attacked yesterday by a swarm of wasps when he was in a sidewalk in this parish. The victim was taken to the Santo da Serra Health Center and later transported to the Machico Health Center in an ambulance of the Municipal Firefighters of Machico.

The Rapid Intervention Medical Team (EMIR) was also deployed to the site.

I have seen a couple of wasps nests in the making on recent Levada walks, so not sure if this is the normal time of year for them to be building, and could probably be easily disturbed.
