Recommended Posts


RIO DE JANEIRO: At least six people were killed and 20 others missing when a cliff collapsed onto boaters on a tourist lake in Brazil, authorities said Saturday.

"We do have six people confirmed as dead so far," Pedro Aihara, a spokesmen for the Minas Gerias firefighters said in a statement.

Edgard Estevo da Silva, another fire department spokesman, said late Saturday that "the current estimate is 20 missing people", in addition to 32 who were injured.

At midday local time Saturday, a large rock fragment broke off a ravine and plunged atop three boats on weekend trips to Furnas Lake, a tourist area in the Capitolio region.
