Jellyfish swimming in the Mediterranean Sea ended up in a power plant. To cool the system of the “Rotenberg” factory, located in the city of Ashkelon, in the south of Israel, sea water is used. By recovering the water, thousands of jellyfish were sucked.

Blue creatures were threatening to block the factory turbines. The workers therefore cleaned the system and eliminated the sticky animals. The employees found a turtle among the jellyfish and also dumped it in the water.
