- At least seven dead after Brazil cliff collapses on boats
I've been there at that exact spot - wow...
After seeing the video, I’m shocked the death toll wasn’t much higher - even with three still missing.ID: hrwteja
It is much higher. One of the recovery spokesmen says it's at least 20, but it's hard to get a count because a lot of bodies are pulverized.
A very terrible accident: RIP. My condolences.
Tragic, this has to be a million to one chance thing, or do rock faces fall off frequently like that?ID: hrxfq6x
I mean, any cliff has risk, but to my knowledge, these aren’t particularly risky ones. Though there’s no real government standards for these boat operators that I’m aware of and they like to get right up close to the waterfalls going into the lake. Certainly not a common occurrence like some of the sea cliffs in Britain, for example.ID: hrxg3w7
Somebody noticed that segment was splitting off as early as 12 years ago.ID: hrxi9xv
Falling on deaf ears I’m sure
