Tuesday morning, two swimmers were stung by jellyfish at the Public beach. One of them had to be hospitalised.

The Environment Agency (ATE) was contacted and sent two officers on site, who identified the species responsible for these stings. This is a wasp jellyfish, like Alatina.

“The presence of this species in our waters is not exceptional, they can be observed every year at the same time,” says the ATE. “Be vigilant in the area of Public beach, avoid swimming in troubled waters. Already difficult to see in conditions of good visibility, the jellyfish becomes invisible in the middle of the particles. Its bites can cause severe muscle cramps, breathing difficulties and shock.”
