That is a jellyfish-like creature that its sting can actually be deadly. Fortunately for the victim, 7-year-old Michael Schanz, he has recovered from this scary incident.

According to the story from WNYT, lifeguards from the Long Island beach said  that on the beach, these Man Of Wars are extremely rare.

Over the past week, there have been incidents involving the jellyfish-like creatures. The three people that did get stung by the Man Of Wars have been treated and all three have recovered.
