    Family, friends mourn as death toll rises to 10 in Brazil cliff fall tragedy

    Friends and families on Sunday (Jan 9) 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.

    There are ways to play that can increase your chances of winning, and I believe that there are many people who don’t know that slot games have a shortcut.

    On Saturday, 168uzi 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 on Sunday by rescuers, civil police commissioner Marcos de Souza Pimenta told reporters.

    More than 30 people were injured, including nine who had to be hospitalised, 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.

    Tourists flock to see the cliffs, caverns and waterfalls that surround the green waters of Furnas Lake, formed by the hydroelectric dam of the same name.

    Dramatic videos shared on social networks captured the moment the cliff collapsed.

    One such video showed the minute before the incident, with several people warning that “lots of stones are falling” and yelling at the occupants of other boats to move away from the rock face.
