SAN DIEGO, July 15 (UPI) -- Dozens of beachgoers were stung by stingrays at a Southern California beach , sending three of them to hospital, authorities said. At least 35 of the painful stings were reported along La Jolla Shores and the Torrey Pines area north of San Diego Wednesday afternoon

Stingray injuries in Huntington Beach have skyrocketed as nearly 200 people reported they were stung in just four days. Panis says the spike in stingray injuries is in part due to extreme low tides, small surf and warmish water in the low 60s along with a holiday crowds in town and people off work

Officials cited warmer water temperatures, which reached the mid-60s, as the reason for increased stingray presence in the shallow waters.

“It feels like fire, like my foot is on fire. And it hurts so bad,” Alexis Andujo, one of the injured visitors, told local ABC affiliate KGTV.

Lifeguards told the news station that it’s common to see increased stingray activity this time of year, but they don’t usually see so many stings in one day.

Purple flags were raised along the shores to warn beachgoers of a potential increase in stingrays, but officials said people probably still weren’t aware of how dangerous the animals can be.

Stingrays often lie partially buried in sand while hunting, making it difficult for swimmers to notice them. The animal’s barb is covered in venom and mucus that causes pain when it breaks the skin.
