Two dead and 32 injured when a huge piece of rock fell in Brazil (video)

Two people died and 32 were injured when a huge rock wall fell from a canyon this Saturday on some tourist boats in a lake in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais, which has suffered a heavy rainstorm in recent days.

The accident happened around 11.00 local time (14.00 GMT) in Lake Furnas, a tourist spot in the municipality of Capitólio (southeast), when a large block of stone fell from a height of five meters on three boats, two of which were completely wrecked.

A video that circulates on social networks and whose authenticity was confirmed to Efe by firefighters shows the moment when the huge rock is detached from the canyon wall and rushes over the group of boats that were in the lake.
