Queensland teen dies from box jellyfish sting

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A teenager has died a week after being stung by a box jellyfish while swimming at a beach on Queensland’s western Cape York.

It is the first recorded fatality from a box jellyfish sting in Australia in 15 years.

The 17-year-old boy was stung at Patterson Point, near Bamaga, on 22 February.

Marine biologist and jellyfish expert Dr Lisa-ann Gershwhin said the teenager’s death was preventable with better resources and education for remote communities.
