Attack of the Killer Umbrellas

In Ocean City, Maryland a woman was recently impaled in the chest by a wind-blown beach umbrella []. She's alive, but I assume in serious condition.

And just a week before another wind-blown umbrella stabbed a woman in the leg at the Jersey Shore.

The umbrellas are active this summer.

We've reported a number of other attacks by wind-blown umbrellas here on WU. In 1979, Paulette Fabre was killed by one on the French Riviera. And in 2010 a woman at Ocean City (again!) had an umbrella go straight through her thigh.

Forget the sharks in the water. It's the wind-blown umbrellas people need to worry about.

Obviously these are really some kind of land jellyfish.

They attack females only. How insidious.
