Friends and families on Sunday mourned the deaths of 10 people who died when a cliff collapsed onto tourist boats on a lake in Brazil, after two people missing in the tragedy were confirmed dead.
On Saturday, a large rock fragment broke free of a ravine and plunged onto four boats in Furnas Lake in Brazil’s eastern Minas Gerais state, as panicked tourists watched helplessly from other vessels.
The bodies of the two remaining missing individuals were found Sunday by rescuers, civil police commissioner Marcos de Souza Pimenta told reporters.
More than 30 people were injured, including nine who had to be hospitalized, authorities said.
The ten who died were part of a group of family and friends on the boat that suffered the biggest impact from the rockfall, according to rescuers.
The victims were all Brazilian nationals, aged between 14 and 68, according to preliminary investigations.
