A beautiful day at the beach turned into every man’s nightmare for a Brazilian teenager.
Jose Ernesto da Silva had his penis ripped off by a shark as he swam with pals over the weekend, according to reports.
Shocked onlookers rushed into the water to assist the terrified young man and pulled him from the ocean.
He died in hospital Monday.
The 18-year-old had been instructed by lifeguards to come closer to shore prior to the attack, Brazilian media reported. Signs warned that deeper water could result in an attack.
See Toronto Sun … there is a video also, but warning, it is beyond graphic !
