BREAKING: Three People ‘Stung to Death by a Swarm of Jellyfish’ While Swimming Just Off The East Sussex

August 1, 2016  —  By


News has just broken that three people are feared dead and others badly injured after being stung by a swarm of jellyfish in Sussex, UK.


It is currently thought that they were stung severely that they have had heart attacks.


The warm weather and warmer waters have brought the jellyfish closer to the shore than normal which is why this is such a freak incident.

One man, a 19-year-old, has been flown to hospital and two others were being worked on by paramedics on the beach of Camber Sands, near Rye, East Sussex.

The Royal Navy Life Boat services are currently out on the search for any other survivors.


They said: ‘UK Coastguard is coordinating an incident at Camber Sands after a number of people got into difficulty in the water.

‘One casualty has been transferred to hospital by Coastguard helicopter and a second person has been taken to hospital by ambulance.

‘Coastguard Rescue Teams from Dungeness and Rye, Coastguard rescue helicopters from Lydd and Solent, Rye RNLI lifeboat, beach lifeguards and police are currently searching for a missing person last seen in the water.’

The first person to ever die as a result of the jellyfish’s sting in Europe was reported in the Mediterranean in 2010.
