Warnings to Queenslanders after Irukandji jellyfish stings

Two teenagers have been rushed to hospital by helicopter after they were stung by deadly Irukandji jellyfish in waters off Fraser Island in Queensland yesterday.

A 13-year-old boy and 14-year-old girl were taken to Hervey Bay Hospital by the RACQ Lifeflight helicopter in a stable condition.

It’s understood the teens were on a boat with family just off the coast of the island when they were stung.

Emergency services were called to their boat off the island’s western coast. Two other people in their group with suspected stings were treated at the scene.
