Global News published this video item, entitled “Death toll from Brazil waterfall rock face collapse rises to 10” – below is their description.

Ten people died in the dramatic collapse of a canyon rock face on top of motor boats visiting a waterfall in southeastern Brazil, rescuers said on Sunday.

A tower of rocks suddenly broke away from the canyon wall on Saturday and came crashing down, crushing one of the leisure boats in Capitolio in Minas Gerais state.

Firemen and divers recovered two more bodies from the lake on Sunday, raising the death toll from eight to 10 in the disaster that injured some 30 tourists hit by falling rocks and a huge wave of water when the rock column crashed into the lake.

The region has been under heavy rainfall for two weeks, which could have loosened the rock face.
