Deadly jellyfish stings on paradise island
The British man chosen from more than 30,000 applicants to look after an island on Australia's Great Barrier Reef has survived being stung by a deadly jellyfish on Hamilton Island.

Ben Southall, the man with the best job in the world, struck trouble in paradise when he felt a small bee-like sting on his arm, as he was getting off a jet ski. The 34 year-old Briton later noticed a tingling sensation in his hands and feet, before developing a severe headache, back pain and high blood pressure. The culprit was a tiny but extremely poisonous Irukandji jellyfish. It may only be the size of a peanut, but it has killed unwary swimmers in the past.
Ben is recovering and is in the final week of his contract, where he's been employed by Australian tourism officials to promote the wonders of the Queensland coast.
