“I took my body board out past the sand bar and it wasn’t five minutes before I got stung.” In just five days, over 1,000 people were treated for jellyfish stings after going swimming at a stretch of beaches in Central Florida.

A spokeswoman for Volusia County Beach Safety was unsure of the highest number of stings, but said the weekend was not the most the beaches have ever seen.
