Shark Rips Off Swimmer’s Penis In BrazilJune 4, 2018
Jose Ernestor da Silva was attacked yesterday afternoon while bathing in waters off the Piedade beach near Recife, on Brazil’s north-east coast.
The shark struck just as lifeguards stationed on the beach had told the 18-year-old to come closer to the shore.
He had been ordered by his mother not to go to the beach following a horrendous shark attack in April in which a 34-year-old tourist lost an arm and a leg.
A shocking video taken by a passer-by shows the moment other holidaymakers pulled Jose from the sea before emergency crews arrived.
The youngster lies limp and unresponsive on the sand and gasps for air as a concerned helper holds his head and tells him to ‘keep breathing’, while another lifts his leg in a desperate effort to keep him alive.
An ambulance rushed Jose to hospital, where he reportedly suffered two heart attacks and is in a critical condition.
Despite undergoing emergency surgery, his penis and femur were ‘amputated’ by the bite of what is believed to be a tiger shark, according to medics.Connect To Us On:
