The Flesh Is Stripped from Your Bones
The greatest fear surrounding piranhas is they can strip the flesh from a man’s bones. It turns out it’s true. In 2015, a 6-year-old girl from Brazil fell into the Maicuru River, near the town of Monte Alegre, where she was set upon by piranhas. When her body was recovered by her family, they found virtually all the flesh was stripped from her legs.
