Anne Curtis Stung by Box Jellyfish

While taping the fantasy series "Dyesebel" Anne Curtis emerged late Thursday stung by Box Jellyfish. The following are photos of Anne after the said incident.

The photos are taken at the hospital showing a large part of Anne's body covered with rashes.

The incident happened in Batangas on Wednesday night and Curtis was brought to hospitals in San Juan and Lipa in Batangas before she was taken to the St. Luke's Medical Center at the Bonifacio Global City, where she is now confined.

But despite her condition, Curtis seemed upbeat when she greeted her supporters via her personal Twitter account earlier Thursday.

“Morning everyone. Just read all your 'Get well soon' messages. Last night was my first time to be stung by a jellyfish, a box jellyfish. Currently in St. Luke's so they can monitor my jellyfish sting/rash & most importantly the rhythm of my heart,” she said.

Anne also sent a message for all her fans, "Been reading up on the box jellyfish and I'm lucky it wasn't fatal. This summer be careful when swimming in the ocean keep and eye out."

To all Cute-rs out there that are planning on a swimming spree this summer take note of Anne's message. Keep a safe summer vacation!


Box Jellyfish


Box jellyfish (class Cubozoa) are cnidarian invertebrates distinguished by their cube-shaped medusae. Some species of box jellyfish produce extremely potent venom: Chironex fleckeri, Carukia barnesi and Malo kingi are among the most venomous creatures in the world. Stings from these and a few other species in the class are extremely painful and sometimes fatal to humans.
