Coast of Brazil this summer attracted thousands of piranhas who regularly attack tourists. In June only 6 people were attacked by these predatory fishes, reports the Daily Mail.
The last of the victims was 22-year-old tourist: piranha attacked her a few metres from the shore at Praia de Cristo. The woman was taken to hospital with a laceration on his leg and in shock.
Besides, despite the fact that the ambulance arrived quickly, the woman lost a lot of blood.
Piranhas can smell blood at a distance of two miles from his victim, and move in large swarms. They often attack people in shallow water, in places that seem secure because of their proximity to the shore.
