Stingray Attack Sends One to Hospital at Island Beach State Park

ISLAND BEACH STATE PARK, NJ – 2020 is turning out to be some kind of year.  First COVID-19, then murder hornets, sharks attacking dolphins on LBI, now we have a stingray attack at the Jersey Shore.

One person was rushed to Community Medical Center on Saturday after suffering an injury during a stingray attack at Island Beach State Park.  The person suffered an arm injury.

Stingray attacks are rare, but can often be fatal because the animal has venomous tail spines and stingers.

In 2006, world-famous television animal show host Steve Irwin died from injuries sustained during a stingray attack.
