    Having posted on my dive blog earlier this year about a young kid who survived a box jellyfish encounter December last year in Koh Mak and a lesser lucky Swedish girl that didn't survive an encounter in Koh Lanta this year and DAN's investion into jelly fish in Thai waters it seems that the Thai government is now getting a more active role to study its origin and behaviour to prevent attacks from box jelly fish in Thai waters.

    The Bangkok Post had an article about this topic today; Deadly box jellyfish found in Thai waters.

    Camille,

    Could it just be a rare anaphylactic shock reaction?
