Blue bottle jellyfish body on the beach

Sydney is a famous coastal city. In the hot summer days, many people like to go to the beaches of all sizes to enjoy the cool water. But there are also many "assassins" and "killers" in the alluring ocean. When it comes to big sharks, many people have a sense of prevention, but when it comes to other small marine creatures, many people take it lightly. For example, the beautiful blue bottle jellyfish (Blue Bottle Jellyfish), this blue elf, is one of the "Assassins", which has caused many beach lovers to be attracted and feel painful.

Tourist is stung, chest tightness, difficulty breathing

Steven Lee, 24, recently graduated from the University of Canberra, and went to a beach south of Sydney with friends in early January this year. It was 1 or 6 in the evening. Steven saw many dead blue bottle jellyfish on the beach, and many living blue bottle jellyfish floating in the sea, which was quite beautiful. Steven didn't realize the danger at all, and he didn't particularly avoid it when he walked on the beach or in the sea.

After entering the water, Steven's right foot was stung and felt a little pain. Later, the foot of the left foot was entangled by the long tentacles of the blue bottle jellyfish and stung again. After about 10 minutes, he felt severe pain. "It feels like there are thousands of needles piercing you at the same time, like someone burning you with fire, which makes you painful. I was still able to move slowly, and my friend helped me walk from the beach to the parking lot. ." Steven told reporters. But when he got to the parking lot, he slowly felt that his two thighs were no longer sensible, but his feet were still painful. Whether it was the toxin or the fear, Steven felt vomiting, chest tightness, and difficulty breathing. At this moment, he couldn't take a step forward. The people on duty on the beach are also off work. In desperation, my friend called 000 emergency number.

After 3, 4 minutes, the emergency crew arrived and used an ice pack to put Steven's foot on it. The locals also told Steven to soak his feet in hot water or vinegar to get rid of toxins after returning home. "In the hour after being stung, the pain is beyond words." Steven said.

After two or three days, Steven's feet gradually improved. But after he returned to Canberra, because he was still taking it lightly and due to the high temperature, his feet began to become inflamed and pustules. He can only go to the hospital for medical treatment. The doctor said that he had never seen a patient who was stung so badly by a blue bottle jellyfish. After that, Steven took anti-inflammatory drugs and went to the hospital for dressing changes every day. After 2 days, the wound finally began to heal slowly. After more than half a month, the scabs gradually improved, but sometimes, I still felt bouts of itching.

"It's unbelievable. This little creature looks so beautiful, so soft, but so toxic. I think many people like me disagree, and many people will touch it out of curiosity. I suffered a lot. Later I learned that when a friend of mine saw the blue bottle jellyfish for the first time, he also touched it, and was paralyzed by the sting of his entire arm. We were able to learn the power of this small thing." Steven told reporters.

Jellyfish three "Assassins"

Some jellyfish look beautiful, but they are true killers. The effects of jellyfish stings range from sensation of mild burning to loss of consciousness and even death. There have been cases in Australia where tourists were stung by Box Jellyfish and caused death.

The blue bottle jellyfish looks very beautiful on the outside. One part of it is a transparent floating sac, which is used to float on the sea and control direction, and the other part is a huge number of jelly-like tentacles. It will sway in the water with the waves, like a blue wizard. No one can imagine it shot so hard. In summer, blue bottle jellyfish can often be seen on Sydney beaches or in the sea.

Don't think that only the living blue bottle jellyfish can sting, and the dead blue bottle jellyfish can also cause pain. A lifeguard told reporters that the dead blue bottle jellyfish cannot be touched either, because the toxins in its body will not disappear within 6 days.

There are also two kinds of jellyfish that people who like to go to the beach should know. One is the box jellyfish, known as the Stinger Missile or the Sea Hornet, which can kill people in a short period of time and often tops the rankings of the major poison kings.

From November to April of the following year, you can often see it on the coast of northern Queensland, Great Keppel Island. If you are stung by a box jellyfish, what you have to do is to go to the hospital as soon as you were bitten by a poisonous snake, and you should be treated with vinegar immediately. Don’t try to pull out any jellyfish tentacles embedded in your body. Sometimes it may be. Artificial respiration is required.

It is not yet clear whether the box jellyfish lives outside Australia. Some experts suggest that when visiting the Great Keppel Island in Queensland, you should consult the locals to understand the safety of the waters.

In addition, there is also a kind of Irukandji Jellyfish, which is known as a close relative of box jellyfish and is also deadly. They are very small, usually only 2.5 cm in length, and are basically invisible in the water. Usually lives in the waters of northern Australia. It is usually very painful when stung, and then symptoms similar to rash and heat rash appear. When more serious symptoms occur, it will be too late for treatment.

If you are stung by a jellyfish, you must pay attention to it, especially if you have red and swollen rashes, you must get emergency treatment as soon as possible.

Do not try to touch marine life

In an interview with our reporter, Alix Vanny, director of the Media Center of the NSW Surf Life Saving Agency, said that usually blue bottle jellyfish are not fatal to humans. The stung wound can be treated with hot water and ice to reduce swelling. Different people's physiques have different severity of reactions to being stung. If a person is more susceptible to allergies, then the wound after being stung will be more serious. It usually leaves red scars after being stung, but it disappears within a few days. If you are stung by sea creatures such as blue bottle jellyfish on the beach, you should tell the lifeguards immediately that they know how to treat them.

Alix Vanny also reminded many beach lovers that the ocean is home to many creatures, so there are various potential dangers, such as the blue-ringed octopus. Tourists should learn to protect themselves, the best way is to swim in the area between the red and yellow flags. If you have any questions or concerns, you can consult a lifeguard on duty. Never try to touch or pick up marine life. For various beach safety consultations and information, please visit http://www.beachsafe.org.au. The website also has information in Chinese.

In addition, it should be noted that children usually have more serious reactions than adults, so you should be more careful when taking children to play on the beach in summer.
