A drunken man was beaten to death by a shark after stepping into the sea to pee on a Brazilian beach.
Marcelo Rocha Santos, 51, was reportedly bitten by a vicious animal while drinking with a friend before entering the water.
Bystanders photographed the victim’s body lying still on the sand shortly after he was immersed. He was seriously injured, including losing his hands and biting a lump from his leg.
Santos was taken to a hospital in the neighboring city of Recife, arrived without vital signs, and was sentenced to death.
The incident occurred on Saturday around 2 pm at Piedade Beach in the city of Jaboatandos Guaralapes, Brazil.
According to local reports, the attack occurred in an area of the beach that had previously been attacked by 12 sharks.
At that time, he was unable to prevent the attack from occurring while the guard was on duty.
Mechanic Edriano Gomez told reporters that Santos entered the water around 2 pm when the weather was cloudy and the sea began to storm.
“It was my friend who was at sea with the attacked man. Suddenly he saw the man suffering.
“There was a lot of blood in the water,” Gomez said.
At the time of the attack, only the victims and others who fled unharmed were in the water.
Another underwater person, glassmaker Ademir Sebastian da Silva, told reporters that the pair went into the water to pee because there was no bathroom on the beach.
“I was by his side with water up to his waist,” said Sebastiaoda Silva.
Marcelo’s friends took the victim to the shore, where he lost consciousness and fell to the ground.
It was unclear what kind of shark attacked him, but experts said it was probably the bull shark (Carcharhinus leucas) or the tiger shark (Galeocerdo cuvier).
The scene of the incident is said to be a hotspot for shark attacks because it is not protected by coral reefs and is open to the public.
Shark attacks were also common during this time, as rain clouded the sea.
The beach was reportedly dotted with various signs warning people to stay out of the water, but watchmen on duty did not instruct the two men to leave the sea. It was thought.
In Pernambuco, Brazil, where Jaboatandos Guaralapes is located and the coast is about 187 km (116 miles), 62 shark attacks have killed 25 people since 1992.
The frequency of attacks was thought to have diminished since this time when construction work at Suape Port began to disrupt animal breeding and hunting habits.
