AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin-Travis County EMS paramedics found a body in a greenbelt near a north Austin park Wednesday.
ATCEMS said via Twitter it received a call about a potential body in the North Star Greenbelt near Walnut Creek Park at 7:26 a.m. Once crews responded to the area, they found the body and pronounced the person dead around 7:45 a.m.
While at the scene, ATCEMS said its crew “had to deal” with a swarm of bees. It’s unclear if the bees had anything to do with the person’s death, but it was apparently a nuisance to responding medics.
According to Austin police, officers responded to the area on an urgent welfare call. No other details were released.
