MANILA - Kapamilya star Anne Curtis believes she has been given a second chance in life after she was stung by box jellyfish while taping the hit fantasy series "Dyesebel" last Wednesday.
In her official Twitter account on Friday, Curtis said doctors told her she was very lucky to have survived.
"Good Morning everyone!!!! Feeling a bit better today! Praise God! After reading some of the other articles you guys found & tweeted me, I really feel I've been given a 2nd chance at life," Curtis said.
"The doctors told me I'm very lucky. The last case they had come in with the same case, a box jellyfish sting, the girl was out straight into the ICU. It's quite a scary thought. When we were on our way to the local and closest hospital near our set, I noticed that I couldn't feel my legs & slowly couldn't breathe properly. I thought I was going to die," she added.
The actress thanked God for giving her the strength to survive, as well as her fans and friends who prayed for her.
"thank you Lord for giving me and my heart the strength to survive this. Thank you to everyone that has sent their well wishes and messages of concern.. Means a lot to me. This is the closest I've ever been to death and I've never been so afraid in my life..Thank you again Sweethearts for all the love & support. (love)," Curtis said.
On Thursday night, photos of Curtis after she was stung by box jellyfish were released to ABS-CBN News.
The photos show the actress at a hospital with a large part of her body covered with red rashes.
