Sanchai Phaoarun, 58, visited a French couple in Thailand when he was attacked by a flock of hornets
Shocked tourists in Thailand watched as their guide was stabbed to death by a flock of hornets that continued to attack his body for four days.
Sanchai Phaoarun, 58, was visiting a French couple in Chiang Mai, northern Thailand last Saturday afternoon when he was attacked by angry insects.
Halfway through the mountain trek, the travel group was suddenly surrounded by thousands of giant wasps after the hive was disturbed.
They bombed Phaoarun and repeatedly stabbed him over his body.
The guide crashed to the ground in terror while the frightened French couple fled in a panic.
Locals from the nearest village heard screams for help from the two tourists, Jean Louis L & amour and Anne Mapile, who were also stabbed. The couple was taken to the hospital.
Rescue workers found Sanchai's corpse later that day, but they could not retrieve it because the corpse was still covered with Asian hornets, known as vespa velutina.
Shocked tourists saw their guide stabbed to death by a swarm of angry giant wasps. His body was removed from the forest near Chiang Mai four days later by rescuers
The body of Phaoarun could not be retrieved for four days because it was still covered with a swarm of hornets deep in the forest
After four days were left in the deep forest, the soaked body was finally picked up yesterday afternoon.
Phaoarun is thought to have stumbled and fallen when he tried to flee the attack from the swarm, according to local media.
Police Lieutenant Colonel Sampan Yotin blamed the wasps for the nightmare-like death and said it was not treated as suspicious.
He said: & # 39; The station received a report about the guide's death last week, but the team was unable to retrieve the body.
& # 39; The French tourists were also injured. They have witnessed what happened and there are no suspicious circumstances. & # 39;
Halfway through a mountain trip, the tour group was suddenly surrounded by thousands of hornets after their hive was disrupted and they bombarded Phaoarun with diving bombs and repeatedly poked him over the body.
One of the rescuers who was involved in retrieving the body said it was difficult because the hornets were still swarming around the corpse.
They added: “We went into the woods on Monday to help the guide, but the mission had to be interrupted after three of our team were stung by the hornets that swarmed around the body.
& # 39; We planned a safer method of covering our bodies with firefighter suits and went back in today and finally we could carry the body outside. & # 39;
The body of the local guide was handed over to the family who will have a Buddhist funeral after an autopsy.
