massive rocks fall on boat in brazil

At least two people died and several were injured after a massive rock formation fell on three boats in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais on Saturday, officials said.

The accident, which has been confirmed by the Brazilian Navy, happened in the city of Capitólia.

A video circulating on social media, which has been verified by Brazilian authorities, shows the exact moment when one of the rocks hits the boats.

According to the Brazilian news portal G1, firefighters in the neighboring city or Piumhi say that a sudden downpour dislocated the rocks and made them fall from a height of more than 16 feet.

Besides the confirmed fatalities, at least 15 people were injured during the tragedy, some of them critically, officials said.

Captain Daniel Henrique Alves de Oliveira told a Brazilian news show Saturday afternoon that more deaths are expected.

It’s estimated that each boat was carrying between 12 to 20 people, including children.

Victims were transported to nearby hospitals. Pedro Aihara, a spokesperson for the local fire department, said that 23 people have already been discharged
