The girl went into anaphylactic shock--a severe allergic reaction--after being stung by a jellyfish,” said a nurse to the Aftonbladet newspaper.
The 10-year-old girl was swimming in the waters off of Klong Dao Beach when she was stung by the jellyfish.
She suffered a quick, hypersensitive reaction and was taken to hospital where doctors worked for an hour and a half but couldn’t save the girl’s life.
Koh Lanta is a popular tourist destination for many Swedes.
