Piranhas attack 70 in Argentina

  • Piranhas attacked 70 people including seven children in Argentina, which resulted in many literally having their flesh torn off. 

    Reports suggest that a heat wave led numerous people to cool off in the Parana River and officials mentioned that the carnivorous fish in the river moved closer to the surface because of the weather. 

    Palometas, which are "big, voracious and with sharp teeth that can really bite" are a type of piranha that have been blamed for the attack. 

    This happened about 200 miles from Buenos Aires and the craziest part is that the extreme weather led some people back into the river within half an hour of the "very aggressive attack."
