As if the bad news on the economy wasn’t enough, now the fish are out to eat you:

Over 60 suffer in unusual piranha attack in Argentina

More than 60 people suffered injuries as a result of an attack of piranhas in the Argentine city of Rosario. The incident occurred on a local beach on the banks of the Parana River.

In case you wondered,

The waters of the Parana River are inhabited by two species of freshwater piranhas – Pygocentrus nattereri and Serrasalmus spilopleura. They reach 33 inches in length and can weigh up to 3.8 kilograms.

Do not, repeat, do not go in that water.
