How many people died in the cliff collapse in Brazil?

On January 8, 2022, at 11:00 local time (14:00 GMT), a cliff collapsed onto cruise ships on Lake Furnas in Capitolio, Minas Gerais state.

At least seven people were killed, three were missing and nearly 32 were injured after an incident in southeastern Brazil.

The Brazilian Navy and local fire brigade are scouring the water for more survivors. At least one of the boats was sunk.

A viral video showed the moment the rock split from the cliff as onlookers tried to warn the boats.

Individuals injured in the crash suffered broken bones and head and face injuries.

The collapse occurred after several days of rain in the area, making the cliffs more prone to collapse, Romeu Zema, the governor of Minas Gerais tweeted.

“I sympathize with the families during this difficult time,” he wrote in Portuguese.

Investigations into the tragic accident are still ongoing.
