Video: Pee On It?

This informative clip of San Diego Lifeguards dealing with stingray stings at La Jolla Shores is our YouTube Clip of the week.

Lifeguards at offer tips and tidbits on dealing with stingray stings in this YouTube Clip of the Week. While the intro music of the Baywatch theme is quite silly, the suggestions on how to treat a stingray sting are quite ... interesting.

We get a demonstration of the stingray shuffle from San Diego Lifeguard Sgt. Ben Lewis, for preventing stings. And see plenty of "victims" taking advantage of hot water soak. But, what really stands out is the mention of urinating on the sting for pain relief.

The video has just 179 views, since it was uploaded in August 2011.

The pain from a stingray sting is excruciating. While I have not tried this, I can see resorting to alternative methods to calm the pain...

Sam Spade, that did not happen. Please show respect and manners. Please play nice here on Patch.
