Fish attack people in Brazil - level 3, A11

Piranhas are very dangerous fish. Thousands of piranhas attacked swimmers on a beach in western Brazil. 15 people have been injured. It is the first time in history when piranhas have attacked in this area. One of the victims said that he went for a short swim and when he stepped into water, he felt a big pain in his foot. He immediately looked at his foot and he found out that he had lost a part of it. He ran away from the water very fast.

The place is very popular with tourists, so the beach wasn’t completely closed. However, people can read a sign that says, it is a dangerous time to swim in the water because of the piranhas.
