Spain closes the beaches because of the deadly jellyfish

In the midst of the swimming season, many tourists from the cold North of Europe are forced to look longingly at the beautiful water of Spanish beaches, not daring to go to sea…

Spain closes the beaches because of the deadly jellyfish
Too bright, terrifying footage of victims published in local media, and rescue personnel rush to flush an alarming red flags. In Andalusia a fair wind from Benidorm caught up with an Armada of Portuguese ships – beautiful, but deadly sea creatures. And people are forced to flee to the shore.

“The pain was unbearable, for the first time in my life I began to pray for death, if only it stopped” – journalists quote the words of Naomi Mateos. She became the most famous victim of the Portuguese ships this season, the other victims preferred to remain incognito. Photos web traces of poisonous tentacles of jellyfish on the skin of 23-year-old girl more eloquent than any arguments of the authorities. And her story is an example that danger can lie in wait for everyone.

Naomi stumbled upon a sea monster on a very popular tourist beach of Punta-de-Calnegre that in the region of Murcia. She managed to go in literally ten meters, dove in and immediately jumped back from the intense pain that spread from the wrist on his back. After a moment, the girl’s body was paralyzed with agony, she lost control of it, and only managed to scream. Literally on animal instincts. Further she remembers vaguely – came to the rescue to help people with the help of fins and other items took off her poisonous tentacles and was sent to the hospital.

The girl can not be accused of negligence, the Portuguese ships are dangerous because of the bright and noticeable air bubble stretch thin, barely discernible in the water tentacles, whose length can reach tens of meters! This is not an ordinary jellyfish that can be pushed away or skirted, this creature belongs to the category of siphonophores and is a colony of many small creatures. It has no organs of motion, depends entirely on the wind and waves, and therefore got the hand to detect and kill any prey to survive. Tentacles on contact strive to wrap around the body of the victim to increase the area of contact and the amount of poison released. If such a contagion engulfs around the body of a child – death is inevitable.

Therefore, it is not surprising that the authorities have a completely different resort made a quick decision to limit access to water when the beach Victoria Portuguese boats attacked 2 tourists, mother and daughter. The city Council of Cadiz ordered to close 4 beaches at once: Victoria, Cortadura, Santa Maria and, with a heavy heart, Hetares. The ban is temporary and everything now depends on the weather and the work of rescue services – they are constantly studying the water area for the presence of dangerous creatures in it.

Last month, similar problems faced by the authorities of Benidorm, which cost a lot of work in the middle of the season to close the main value of the resort – its beaches. But now there is all the wisdom of this decision, because in the region of the Portuguese ships suffered only 7 people. And they got off with minor injuries, did not even have to go to the hospital. The authorities quickly localized the situation on the beach of Mal Pas, and then on the Levant and Ponient, and in a few hours the red flags of alarm have been changed to yellow.

As such, there are no special ways to protect against Portuguese ships. They will not be able to inject poison through dense tissue, so professional divers in their wetsuits are in relative safety. To deal with this scourge is difficult and, in fact, useless – the wind and currents chase the ships around the World ocean, so the accumulation of poisonous misfortune in one place is considered commonplace. Including resorts in Spain.
