Anne Curtis' Encounter With Box Jellyfish Could Have Been Fatal

ANNE CURTIS continues to receive bashings for allegedly berating Sam Concepcion at the birthday party of Vice Ganda. A few days after that, her life was put in danger when she was stung by box jellyfish while taping “Dyesebel” in Batangas. This is part of what she wrote in her Twitter account: “I really feel I've been given a 2nd chance at life. The doctors told me I'm very lucky. On my way to the nearest hospital, I noticed that I couldn't feel my legs & slowly couldn't breathe properly. I thought I was going to die. This is the closest I've ever been to death and I've never been so afraid in my life.”

She was later taken to St. Luke’s Medical Center in Taguig where she’s now recuperating. She twitted later: “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. 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 an eye out.”

You can see the extent of what the jellyfish did to her in the photos here. But some heartless bashers make fun of her with tasteless jokes, saying what she got is karma for what she allegedly did to Sam. Her boyfriend of three years, Erwan Heussaff, answered her haters in social media: "For all of you idiots making fish jokes, the box jellyfish is one of the deadliest animals on earth... Judgmental asses."
