Holy shizz, this is awful and in NO WAY like those cheesy sci-fi movies like (above)!
A school of carnivorous fish has injured 70 people bathing in Argentina — and they're lucky that more of the thousands of bathers that showed up that day weren't attacked because of those 70, seven were children who lost parts of their fingers or toes!
According to lifeguards, people began complaining of bite marks on their hands and feet! Those marks were the work of palometas:
"a type of piranha, big, voracious and with sharp teeth that can really bite."
Excuse us while we never swim in Argentine rivers! SO SCARY!
Some of the kids even lost entire digits!
What's even more insane is that the area is so hot right now a whole bunch of people went back to the water after about a half hour!
It MUST be hot if you're willing to lose digits!
