A funeral in China turned even more morose after a family of eight was attacked by a swarm of aggressive wasps, killing two and injuring five.

The Pang family was on its way back from the burial site after the funeral ceremony of a relative on Saturday when the incident occurred in China's Tangdu.

Of the two deceased men, one was 70-year-old and died instantly as a result of the severe allergic reaction the stings, local media reported.

The injured men were taken to the Xingye People's Hospital where two other men of ages 60 and 87 also succumbed to anaphylactic shock. The other five survivors were then shifted to the Yulin First People's Hospital, Daily Mail reported.

According to Xingye country officials in the southern Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region in China, one of the survivors continues to be in a serious condition.

This is not the first time that people were stung to death. In October 2013, giant, deadly hornets killed at least 42 people in China.

Crazed wasps also stung a tour guide to death in Thialand in October this year. The man had taken a couple of French tourists out to sight-see in Chiang Mai when the incident occurred.
