ADELAIDE, Australia - Trouble struck paradise this week when a British man who has the "Best Job in the World" as the caretaker of a tropical Australian island was stung by a potentially lethal jellyfish.

Ben Southall – who won a contest to blog for six months about life on Australia's Hamilton Island to promote tourism – wrote Tuesday that he was lucky to have survived his brush with the extremely venomous Irukandji jellyfish.
