When Jellyfish...Attack!

More from the files of the absurd this week. The last place you want to be fishing these days is the Philippines :

A fisherman yesterday died of “cardiogenec shock” after he was attacked by a jelly fish in Brgy. Tiling, Cauayan, Negros Occidental, a report from the Provincial Heath Office said.

The victim was identified as Emilio Lindayao, 40, and a resident of the barangay. Lindayao, and his brother went for a swim in the coastal area of Brgy. Tiling in Cauayan, when he was attacked by the jellyfish.

Police reports said Lindayao was declared dead on arrival at the Cauayan District Hospital, because of jellyfish stings.
