Beware of Portuguese man-of-wars

Rick Fox and his wife, Elaine, who moved to Holden Beach in February, were walking along the shoreline when they spotted this Portuguese man-of-war in the surf at low tide about 4 p.m. Monday. “My wife had never seen one before and thought it was a toy. I told her not to touch it because I had seen them in the Caribbean and knew their sting was dangerous,” Rick said. “I was not aware they would come this far north. Everyone needs to know to stay away from them.”
