TYBEE ISLAND - Authorities say 894 people were stung by jellyfish during the Fourth of July holiday weekend on Tybee Island, off the Georgia coast.

Tybee Ocean Rescue Lt. Hunter Robinson says he thinks the number of attacks is unusual for this time of year at the popular tourist destination near Savannah.

Robinson tells WSAV-TV the high number of victims might be because the water in the area heated up quickly this year, compared to previous years.
