The shark bit off the girl's hand, but the witnesses did not help her, but filmed what was happening on video
A 15-year-old Brazilian woman who lost her arm in a horrific shark attack chided passers-by who took the opportunity to film the horrific scene instead of helping her, reports Independent.
Cailanne Timoteo Freitas was attacked on Piedade Beach in Brazil on 6 March. She was swimming near the shore when a shark bit her in the stomach. She began to struggle with the creature, but the shark bit her again, tearing off her arm near her left elbow.
“At the time, I thought someone was playing a prank on me because there were a lot of people around me,” she told local news outlets. “I still had my doubts. I thought, “This is not happening to me. A nightmare". I thought I would wake up. I only fainted in the ambulance.”

Cailanne said a young man who was swimming nearby heard her screams and helped pull her out of the water, where they were waiting for rescuers to arrive.
As soon as they were on the beach, Kaylann, who was screaming in pain and bleeding, noticed that many passers-by were standing around and recording her agony on their phones.
The incident infuriated her.
“No one respected me at the time,” she said. - I understand that this is what everyone wants to record, show, film. But at the time I didn't think about it. I just thought I was going to lose my arm for the rest of my life.”

Her father expressed the same distaste for the public reaction to his daughter's injury.
“During the attack, people were filming, not helping. This is what was killing me inside,” he said.
Kaylann was airlifted to the hospital, where she underwent reconstructive surgery and was eventually discharged. She said she still suffers from pain and panic attacks after the incident.
“I had a hand for 15 years of my life,” she said. “I have been reborn, and I will have to learn everything all over again.”
This shark attack was the second in 24 hours. The day before, a 14-year-old boy was attacked by a shark near the site of the Kaylann attack. As a result, he received injuries that forced the local medical staff to amputate his right leg.

Paramedic Marcelo Alves said that local authorities have restricted swimming on the beach in 2021 due to frequent shark attacks, but noted that people still swim there no matter what.
“The team has already been alerted to these events,” he said. “There is a restriction that says that swimming is prohibited, but people, unfortunately, still go swimming.”
