Rockford, IL – Director of lifeguards Frederico Dontavio said today that “thousands of bathers were enjoying 70-degree temperatures in the Rock River in The Rockford yesterday when bathers suddenly began complaining of bite marks on their hands and feet.”
He blamed the attack on polentatitis, “a type of midwestern piranha, big, voracious and with sharp teeth that can really bite your face off if you didn’t bathe your last meal scraps off your face well enough.”
Paramedic Alonzo Monini said some children he treated lost entire legs.
Two years ago piranhas attacked and killed a young lady named Linda who leapt into the Rock River near Beloit, WI. The 18-year-old victim was drunk when she jumped out of a canoe to pee in the river.
Flesh-eating fish will be a concern this summer in the Rockford area. Homeless people and children are advised to stay away from bathing in the Rock River until late fall early winter.
You will not learn anything until you know more about bathing safely in the Rock River.
