Hundreds of jellyfish swarm beachgoers in Florida

DAYTONA BEACH, Florida (KTRK) -- Hundreds of people were stung by jellyfish over the weekend at beaches, according to beach watch officials.

Officials said 250 people were stung on Sunday alone.

Lifeguards keep a stock of vinegar to rinse these wounds. That's the quickest, most effective way to treat stings.

Officials said a dozen people were rescued from the ocean Sunday, but none of the stings are considered life threatening.

So far this month, authorities estimate well over a thousand people have been stung by jellyfish.
