“At least they aren’t piranhas!” Comical moment worker gets knocked into water as he releases hundreds of fish into a Brazilian lake
- The Brazilian man was setting up a fishing lake in Prata, Minas Gerais, Brazil
- He was washed off the back of a truck with the fish when he opened the container
- Both the cameraman and a colleague quietly watched as the man plodded
This is the comedic moment when a worker took an anticipated dive while staking a lake of fish in Brazil.
In the slapstick incident, the worker was swept off the back of a truck by a torrent of water when hundreds of fish were released into the pond in Prata, Minas Gerais.
Oddly enough, the man’s colleague – as well as the person filming the moment – did nothing to help him and instead went on with what they were doing.
Viewers who watched the footage, filmed on Oct. 12, said the second man’s nonchalance suggested it wasn’t the first time such a fall had occurred.
The person filming said afterwards: ‘We were going to record the video to put on the fishing page when a batch of fish arrived.
“Then it turned out that the man responsible for opening the lid slipped and fell into the pond.”

The 27-second clip has been viewed more than 44,000 times on YouTube.
A user who watched the video went to the comments to remind the man who attacked him that the situation could have been worse.
They said, ‘Just as well it wasn’t piranhas being released or there would have been a ‘release and feed’.
Piranha, the omnivorous fish, is native to Brazil and can be found in the rivers of the South American country.
The fish are feared because they have bites strong enough to tear human flesh, which they can also use as food.
One commenter joked, “This gives ‘You’re going to sleep with the fishes’ a whole new meaning.”
Another commented, “There’s something weird about the whole situation.”
