Man dies after losing control in horror bike crash and is attacked by angry bees

A motorcyclist tragically died after he crashed his bike into a pole and was attacked by a large swarm of angry bees.

Vinicius 'Viny' Silva, 30, was reportedly travelling along a road at fast speed when he lost control.

It's understood the man had ventured out on his bike to enjoy a daytime ride before hitting a pole.

The fire department on the scene in the Brazilian state of Parana said a swarm of bees attacked Viny's motionless body – it is currently unclear if he was already dead when the attack occurred.

This meant that people at the scene were unable to tend to the victim as they were distracted by trying to scare the bees away from attacking him.

Emergency services located a beehive nearby.

Vehicle shop worker Viny posted on social media that he was heading out to enjoy the day with a motorcycle ride just two hours before he fatally crashed.

One of his friends reportedly wrote on social media: "I can't believe it, brother, may God welcome you with open arms, you were light wherever you went, it was a pleasure to have been your friend and have shared good times with you.
