TWO British schoolgirls cheated death after being stung by a lethal Portuguese Man O’War.
Pal Amelia Walsh, 12, was left with huge welts on her legs after brushing part of the creature that was draped over a rock.
Medics used freezing water and seawater to flush out the toxins.
Bathers were evacuated after last Friday’s attack at Monmouth Beach, Dorset.
Molly, of Ascot, Berks, said: “I thought I was stung by a bee at first, then suddenly it felt like my arm was on fire. It got worse and worse until I couldn’t stop shaking.”
Last night mum Sheenagh said: “Molly is getting better but her arms are still very swollen.”
Brits were warned last month of seven species of poisonous sea creatures heading for our shores due to global warming.
