The death toll from an accident in which a slab of cliff rock toppled onto leisure boaters in Brazil has risen to 10, police said Sunday.

Relatives gathered as authorities worked to identify the dead.

Divers continued to search the site of Saturday’s disaster – Lake Furnas, north of Sao Paolo – to see if there were other victims.

Fire service commander Giuvaine Barbosa de Moraes said body parts were found that are believed to belong to two missing people.

Authorities believe the rock fall could have been caused by recent heavy rain.
