A medical marvel

Is she or isn't she? Ten year old Rachel Shardlow survives an encounter with one of the deadliest creatures in the sea, the box jellyfish. According to the article the box jellyfish completely enveloped her until she lost consciousness. Typically the result of one of these encounters is a swift death, but Rachel has survived and is doing reasonably well several months later, prompting doctors to pronounce her a medical marvel.
