A Brazilian teenager died after a shark bit his penis off while swimming in the ocean on Piedade Beach near Recife, Brazil.

Jose Ernesto da Silva was enjoying a day at the beach with friends over the weekend until the shark attack, The Province reported.

Other beachgoers rushed to the 18-year-old’s aid and pulled him to the shore. He was taken to a local hospital, where he died of his injuries Monday.

A video posted to YouTube with a graphic content warning depicts da Silva being carried to the shore with his injury in evidence. As rescuers try to stem the flow of blood, others urge him to breathe.

Local reports indicated that signs were posted to be aware of sharks, and da Silva was personally asked by lifeguards to move closer to the shore, The Province reported. A tiger shark is blamed for the attack.

“At the exact moment in which the lifeguards asked for them to come closer to the beach, he was bitten,” a fire official told local reporters.

The teen reportedly suffered two cardiac arrests on the way to the hospital.

JC Online interviewed da Silva’s mother, Elisangela dos Anjos, after the incident.

“He would go in secret, because he knew that I thought it was dangerous. I wasn’t worried because I thought he was somewhere around the house,” she said, according to The Sun. “When I heard about it I went crazy, all the neighbors heard me screaming.”

Folks on social media were horrified, with some offering various theories for the attack.
