Dozens of people have been injured in a frenzied attack by a school of piranhas on an Argentinian beach.
The attack occurred at a local beach on the banks of the Parana River, in the city of Rosario, central Argentina.
More than 60 people were hurt in the Christmas Day attack, including seven children.
Among the wounded was a seven-year-old girl who suffered severe bites to her left hand, according to local newspaper La Capital.
The girl was taken to hospital where she had part of a finger amputated, the newspaper reported.
Most of the victims were bitten on the arms, feet and legs.
Paramedic Gustavo Centurion described the piranhas as "very aggressive".
Authorities say the attack may have been provoked by unusually high temperatures in Argentina in recent days.
The beach has since been closed to bathers.
