According to a report yesterday from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the six-year-old Israeli girl who had a cardiac arrest after being stung by a poisonous jellyfish is currently in a serious but stable condition. The Israeli child’s heart stopped beating after she was stung by a harmful box jellyfish on a beach in Ko Pha Ngan on Sunday. She then passed out. After receiving initial aid on the beach, which helped to revive her, she was subsequently transported by helicopter to the Surat Thani Hospital. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirmed Wednesday that the young girl’s condition had improved and that they are in contact with the child’s parents. Given the seriousness of the situation, Eli Senna, the Israeli consul in Bangkok, called the child’s survival “a miracle.” She said, “The situation may have easily turned terrible if they hadn’t started treating the girl immediately away from the moment she was bitten.” We are very glad that things worked out the way they did, and we will continue to support the family and help in any way we can. One of the most hazardous creatures in the world is the box jellyfish, also referred to as the marine wasp. Its tentacles have a maximum length of over five meters, and each one is covered in nematocysts, which are tiny, poisonous darts. One of the most dangerous chemicals on the globe, according to legend, is the venom found in the darts. Near August of 2021, an Israeli little boy, age 9, died after being stung by a sea wasp jellyfish in Ko Pha Ngan. It can potentially cause death in some people due to the tremendous pain, paralysis, and cardiac arrest that it causes. A 17-year-old boy lost his life in February of this year after being stung by a box jellyfish while swimming at a beach on Queensland’s western coast. Even though box jellyfish can be found all year long in the Gulf of Thailand and the Andaman Sea, Sophon Golden of the Department of Marine and Coastal Resources claims that the most deadly venomous jellyfish species are more prevalent from July through October.
