Woman airlifted after Irukandji sting

The woman in her early twenties had been surfing when the suspected Irukandji jellyfish stung her on the arm. A family member surfing with her brought her back to shore.

The RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter met the local QAS crews at the State Emergency Service grounds at Agnes Waters where she was then airlifted to Bundaberg Base Hospital in a stable condition.
