The provincial disaster risk reduction and management council (PDRRMC) on Tuesday warned beachgoers to stay close to the shore when swimming in the Lingayen Gulf to avoid being stung by jellyfish. The warning was issued in anticipation of the influx of thousands of tourists heading for the different public beaches in Pangasinan province during the Holy Week. Avenix Arenas, PDRRMC spokesperson, said jellyfish sting could be fatal if the patient was not given immediate medical attention.
