About Australia, our oceans barely crumble, but they do not make mistakes, they are protected. At the end of the armchair, they put bars in a poison.
In the meantime, the delicate brown box in our hot seas, from teeth and claws to the end of the 60-million-cell arsenal of toxic toxins. If a man is cleansed by two meters of the tentacle, he can put his heart in a few minutes.
Of course, one of these creatures is not looking for problems. In fact, there is no jealous animal in the world preaching to man, as expert advisor Jamie Seymour says, the Irukandji jellyfish has spent 11 times. Any sting, bunch or jab – potentially life-threatening – is caused by self-defense only.
"The pain is worse than imagining," says seymour associate professor. "Out of 14 out of 10".
The message of the animal is obvious to predators like us: stay over me or invade my space and put my agony into the world.
Here are four Australian stories that tell you about the poisonous life-lives of life.
And here's what you need to do, or someone next to you, it's misfortune to have a similar encounter this summer.
Kutxa medusak sting
Andrew Jones was one of the family vacations on Koh Mak Island in the Gulf of Thailand in Christmas 2007. When his wife and two young children swam, when the water left, they rested. Andrew tells him:
"The next thing was, my four-year-old Lewis screamed. I still remember that scream.
"He swam his mother and I darted. I picked it up.
"He hung these things, almost like noodles cooked, transparent. I went back home to the beach. I still do not know what it was but I had to turn things off. With my fingers, I caught one of these things and threw it and Velcro tightened it. He left a big gash on his left thigh.
"But as soon as he did that, he cried, and immediately the unconscious fell and, in seconds, he covered himself with blue. He checked his pulse and there was nothing. He did not breathe.
"We went back to the bungalow, asking for help. The woman who had been in occupation picked up vinegar and began to throw Lewis on her legs.
"Perhaps, two minutes later, he breathed and his eyes widened broadly and left a great cry and began to cry. It was something like revival, a miracle. Everyone who has heard it said he must have died after the number of poems.
"On this island, there was a single taxi and it happened that it was just outside the resort. We got up, moaning and delirious, rolling his eyes, towards a medical clinic, but it was closed.
"We continued to talk with Lewis, the woman who came from the hotel realized and, 45 minutes later, someone came.
"She washed her wounds and the rest of the tentacles pulled her from her feet and gave her a pain relief and agreed that we were back in the bungalow and I knew her own owner. I was an analgesic paste that I know now, a bit of pain from the coast that grows in disaster.
"You look for paradise. But we stayed there. And it could be much worse."
Steph Gould in Brighton Beach, Melbourne was overwhelmed by Port Phillip Bay in 2017 when he came to a stingray. Recall the following thing:
"Something was wrinkled beneath my feet and slightly sucked.
"I did not see anything. Water was in the waist, so you can not see it below.
"I felt pain in the back of the ankle and it was my first reaction," I think something. "We came back and found it was cut off from the outside [of my leg] and inside, what went out of the way, he left the other side of my Achilles tendon and went out again.
"I remember remembering – obviously, there are so many Australian venomous beings – that is deadly poisonous creatures or a mildly poisonous creature?
I drove my foot down and I did not tend to ride.
"I asked, how did I control my body in that situation? I felt the poison coming from my leg. This poison is a backshell, if it's painful it gets into the blood. Pain was stopped. I felt like it was burning pain, I felt the pain it was definitely feeling.
"We went to the clinic of medicine. I walked in the blood and I could not walk through the tendon and I could not put on weight.
"The doctor asked me how much I had pain on the 10 scale. I told them 10 and he gave me some Panadol.
"In the end, they gave me one of those green greens and they helped me a lot. While I was around I put my foot in a bucket full of hot water, and apparently washed it.
"We went to the local hospital and made an ultrasound and broke broken fractures in three parts and found that they were stuck in the toilet. They said they needed surgery. I had been in the hospital for two nights.
"When they told me, they should do a larger ankle so they could handle my ankle internally and take off the pieces. When I returned to the surgery, a couple of weeks later, the bandages came out … and the ankle cut out twice and the blood was covered and that's why I had to believe. I do not know that it would be great.
"After five or six weeks I walked across the road. I never imagined that it would ever disappear.
"In March, during the Black Rock beach I saw a stingray near the shore. I thought, I'll be back to finish."
Stomach fish jab
Gabrielle Targett made a skiing on the surf in 1989 when he arrived at Whitfords Beach on Perth in Perth. The following happened:
"I jumped out [the surf ski] To the water, to the seaweed, and I felt a cornea in my flesh under the left bone, in the ankle. I thought it was a sharp stick and my boyfriend went to the car.
"I did not know about it, but the shoes of the shoes did the nails walk through my foot diagonally and broken.
"I linked Neil (boyfriend) to the stairs and saw that my foot was bleeding. I felt puncture marks but I still felt something. I tried rubbing but the blood was closing.
"I thought it was just a sharp stick, but as soon as I left it in my mouth, I started to scream. Suddenly, hot poker was driven by my legs. My heart beats went through the roof. I could not move, I swept the sweat.
"I saw my boyfriend before. He told others:" Gaby came up with something, a stingray or a shoe! I take it to the hospital.
I could not control my scream. I said: "Get this shoe!"
"He lay down in the back seat and put a towel in my mouth, and said:" You have to bite the bite. "Sir Charles Gairdner went to me, saturated, still in my brand new neoprene.
"Freezing and slowing down my whole body – my arms, my back, my head, my nerve endings were shot, my body was pressing and I thought it would kill me. I would not let my boyfriend touch him, but he said: "I have to go inside".
"He leads me, screaming at the top of my voice, I was a runner of marathon, I was pushing through the limit of the pain, but I could not control my scream. I said:" Get this shoe! "They said:" We must cut it. " I said no.
"My feet kept my warm blood in a bucket with ammonia, it felt like it was boiling in water, they cried to me, they were being tortured, but they were there, saying they were going to have toxin, a specialist said:" It's a past path. This toxin is spread through its body. Just help with pain
"Later, it was clear that my heart beats, my adrenaline and all the running of the beach were thrown from the body toxins.
"I wanted to put a morphine in a cannon, but I could not stop it. I had to keep it down and I backed my morphine.
"The next 48 hours I have given morphine and pethidine. I was alcohol. As soon as pethidina began to lower, the body was frozen and the fire returned. It was hell on the ground.
"I had machines in the weeks. I was like a blow. One week later, I turned my crutches to Surfera, I was encouraged in the race. They did not even know me.
"One month it was completely recovered, but I did not know how to dissolve or swallow the smaller ones, but the larger space was added a year ago. I was very busy this summer, teaching Cottesloe to swim, scratching at the site and ringing at the same time. , like a big lid. "
Irukandji catches jellyfish
She was one of the vacationers of the Alana Rowick family on Sunday morning in 2001, and her brother, Cam, after 8 years old, felt the backbone of the cable around his legs. He never forgot what happened:
"I felt sorry – painful, sudden pain. I went back on the shore and my brother continued. We both started crying, but the lifeguard told us that they were just local jellyfish.
"Two or three millimeters multi-colored molds – circular shapes, very red light, slightly shaped hives around my legs, from the front and the back, from the thigh to the middle.
"I remember that I felt annoyed, if this were painful, when I went back.
"In 15 minutes, I breathed, and when I got to the top of the hill, I could not breathe. I thought it was mine, it was just pain, but my little brother did not breathe.
"Pretty quickly, my chest began to feel like a block of concrete.
"We went into the car and went to the hospital. The doctor said he did not see anything in Broome, he called the cold Perth cold poisoning," said the guy at the worst thing he saw in Queensland.
"When the day went by, my brother was better. I was worse.
During the five days I was in a coma to keep the lungs and my heart lungs and my heart worked hard enough.
"There was a lot of mess and plastic on the floor, since they were packing everywhere, trying to stabilize and stop me, but I did not do anything.
"Broome, the doctor, saved my life, sent me to Perth, the Flying Doctors at 6pm, I've vomited all over the plane. I saw it heartfelt and the blood pressure was not good.
"My father got a commercial flight with me. We arrived at the Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital in 11, but I do not remember intensive care. My heart was already lacking.
"Later, I met people who worked in my heart and they told me I was a little bit jealous at work.
"The next day, the rest of my family fell.
"While I was in the coma for five days, the lungs and the heart got enough lungs and hearts to work.
"I woke up and could not see. It was all dark, and I had a tube like a hose in the garden, down my throat. I could not turn my head or raise my arms.
"Even three months later, I only had a long enough shower. It took a few months to recover my heart.
"This was the first case of Irukandji Syndrome in WA, the next day there were two dead people in the 50s with high blood pressure and they both died. I was lucky."
