Portuguese man o' war washes up on NJ beach

- A Portuguese man o' war washed up on the beach in Harvey Cedar, New Jersey. 

It happened around 10 a.m. Friday on Shoreline Beach.
 
According to the beach patrol, it was disposed of and no one was injured. 
 
Portuguese man o' wars look like jelly fish.  Experts say they have extremely long tentacles that can wrap around a person and sting them several times, causing itching, swelling, nausea and in rare cases death.
 
If you see a Portuguese man o' war don't touch it and notify beach patrol.
