You cannot delete multiple cells at once with the method described in the tutorial. That will only work for single cell. If you select multiple cells and use button, for example, to trigger delete action, your code could look something like this:

if let indexPaths = tableView.indexPathsForSelectedRows() as? [NSIndexPath] {
    for indexPath in indexPaths {
        // one by one remove items from your datasource

    tableView.deleteRowsAtIndexPaths(indexPaths, withRowAnimation: .Automatic)
