Bolivian Teen May Have Committed Suicide Via Piranha

The lone explanation that police have for an 18-year-old fisherman jumping into piranha infested waters is suicide. The man, who hasn't been identified, bailed on his canoe in the Yata River in Rosario del Yata, 400 miles north of Bolivian capital La Paz.

Although he wasn't eaten alive, the man died of blood loss as a result of multiple bites. Despite what you may have heard or seen in Pirahna 3D, human deaths by piranha are rare. Not sure what made him resort to this, but it must've been terrible.
