KOTA KINABALU: A 12-year-old girl has become the third person to be stung by jellyfish while swimming at the Tanjung Aru beach here.
Eriana Tony was swimming at the beach with her family when she suddenly felt a sharp pain on her hand at about 3.50pm Sunday.
Her father rushed to her aid after hearing her scream, and alerted the beach attendants.
One of them rubbed some vinegar to the girl's arm to reduce her pain before she was sent to the Queen Elizabeth hospital for treatment.
On Jan 12, two boys were also stung by jellyfish when swimming at the beach.
It was reported that Beach Tower attendants had raised a red flag after finding many white jellyfish there recently.
