1-anyos na bata, patay dahil sa kamandag ng kumapit na box jellyfish habang naliligo sa dagat

Maraming kababayan natin ang siguradong magpupunta sa beach ngayong summer at bakasyon para maglibang at makapag-swimming.

Pero dapat parin na maging mapagmatyag at siguraduhin ang kaligtasan ng buong pamilya, lalo na ang mga bata.

Nag-viral noon nakaraang taon ang pagkamatay ng isang bata habang naliligo sa dagat.

Ayon sa Facebook post ni Rosemae Tomilloso Alegre, nakagat umano ang kanyang pamangkin ng isang dikya o jellyfish.

BASAHIN ANG KANYANG POST SA FACEBOOK:

Kung sakaling nakagat ng dikya o jellyfish, dapat itong lagyan ng suka nang 15 hanggang 30 minuto. At kung walang suka ay puwede rin gumamit ng salt water.

“Jellyfish stings are a common problem at the beach, but not all jellyfish stings are dangerous. When stung by a jellyfish, the first thing you will feel is a stinging, itchy pain. Eventually, you will experience swelling, and uneven marks on the skin. If the jellyfish is venomous, you will experience difficulty breathing, and in some cases, dizziness. “‘Yung iba dumidiretso eh, puwedeng ikamatay ‘yun,” ayon kay Dr. Victoria Abesamis, hepe ng Medical Professional Services ng East Avenue Medical Center.

“Immediate treatment is necessary, as jellyfish have nematocysts, or stinging cells, that release toxins that can spread through the body. If stung by jellyfish, soak the affected area in vinegar for 15 to 30 minutes. If no vinegar is available, salt water may be used. Fresh water should be avoided, however, as this can only produce more toxins. Kasi ‘yung ihi, di naman lahat ng ihi ay acidic. Dapat kasi kasing acidic ng suka o acetic acid,” dagdag ni Abesamis.

Bumuhos naman ang pakikiramay ng maraming netizens sa social media dahil sa nangyari sa bata.
