Contrary to his resurrection for the highly anticipated sequel, Piranha 3DD, we're 99.99% positive that Deputy Fallon (Ving Rhames) dies in Alexandre Aja's 2010 remake. Not that you can really argue the logic of a visual gore-fest such as this, especially when its characters use none.
When piranhas feed upon a spring break water party on Lake Victoria, the deputy first tries blasting them with his shotgun as if it will have any impact. In a more inspired move, he snaps up a boat motor and uses its propeller like a water chainsaw to make sushi. But does he do this from inside the boat or even from a dock? No, he stands exposed in the water, where the hungry buggers eventually take his legs out from under him.
We just hope that in the next movie he refers to his peg legs as his "fish sticks."
