Surprised by jellyfish

A story by Pia | Switzerland | 23.10.2022

"I love the vastness of the sea and like to get away from the shore to unwind while swimming. Since I can strap on Restube, I also feel safer. I recently found out how helpful this belt with inflatable buoy can be.

With powerful crawl strokes I was out in the waters around Lampedusa, Sicily, enjoying the colourful fish below me and the blue sky above me. I met a fisherman with whom I chatted a little about his catch. Full of pride, he showed me an octopus that his family would grill in the evening. I felt a little sorry for this intelligent animal, but still expressed compliments that made the fisherman very proud.

Out of nowhere, I suddenly saw a dreaded jellyfish on my right and automatically made a movement to the left. Unfortunately, directly into more jellyfish. The tentacles hit my neck and my chest, it felt like they were cutting off my air. I am allergic and knew immediately that I was in a dicey situation. My hand grabbed the yellow trigger on my Restube, which blew up immediately with a hissing sound. The sound and the bright yellow caught the attention of the fisherman I had just been chatting with. He started his engine and in no time he was at my side asking me if I needed help. Such a luck, because I got ashore quickly and was able to take my antihistamine and cortisone.

Thank you Restube! I will continue to enjoy my open water trips and feel safer doing so thanks to Restube."
