Piranha-Like Fish Bite Over 70 Bathers in Argentina


A swarm of biting fish injured more than 70 people who were bathing at a popular beach in Argentina on Christmas, said a medical official on Thursday.

A seven-year-old girl had her finger partially amputated and dozens more suffered bite wounds on their extremities.

Director of emergency services in Rosario says the biting fish is a relative of the piranha called "palometas".

The attack happened off the popular beaches of the Parana River near Rosario, 186 miles north of Buenos Aires, where many Argentines were seeking relief from a heat wave over the holiday.
