Swimming into jellyfish like hitting 'bushfire at sea'

From Morning Report, 6:43 am on 30 January 2018

A Wellington ocean swimmer says swimming straight into a huge jellyfish was like running into a bushfire at sea. Nick Butcher told RNZ's Eric Frykberg he was swimming in the harbour when he had the unfortunate encounter. "It was a face-plunge," Mr Butcher says. 

Jellyfish have been swarming at beaches around Wellington lately.
