Fish attack people in Brazil - level 1, A11

Piranhas are very dangerous fish. It was in western Brazil where many piranhas attacked people on a beach. The piranhas attacked 15 people. It is the first time in history when piranhas attacked in this place. One man said that he went into the water and he felt a big pain. The pain was in his foot. He looked at his foot. A part of his foot wasn’t there. He ran away from the water very fast.

The place isn’t closed because tourists like this beach very much. But tourists can read that it is a dangerous place now because piranhas are in the water.
