Watch out for bluebottle jellyfish at Muriwai beach

Brittany Keogh Reporter from Nor-west News

Hi neighbours, at least 17 people were stung by bluebottle jellyfish at Muriwai on Monday. Thousands of people were at the beach that day, despite a warning being posted on Auckland Council's Safeswim website about a large number of jellyfish being in the water.
The beach goers who were stung received first aid treatment from lifeguards. Bluebottle jellyfish stings cause whip-like red welts that can last for up to three days. They can be extremely painful, so make sure you watch out for them and check for warnings.
