Tragic reports coming in have gone on to reveal how at least seven people have died and several others are severely wounded after a rock wall collapsed upon leisure motorboats in Brazil.
According to local media reports, the incident took place when a wall of rock fell down upon the motorboats, right below a waterfall. The incident was reported to have taken place in the southeastern region of Brazil on Saturday as mentioned by the fire department.
All of a sudden, a giant tower of rocks began to come crashing down on a number of boats that were present for leisure purposes. This reportedly sent out a major wave over the lake that is located at Capitolio, which is in the Minas Gerais state.
Horrifyingly tragic videos have been making the rounds on social media which feature the tourists yelling and screaming for help during the sudden tragedy as the giant column of rock starts to crash into the water, smashing directly into the boat.
Meanwhile, state authorities have gone on to mention how at least three people were still missing from the site of the tragic incident as others who were feared as being lost were tracked down by telephone services.
Divers began the rescue mission immediately to try and locate those missing by searching the entire vicinity at and around the lake.
Those who have been injured in the incident were documented as being inflicted with serious injuries like broken bones. Meanwhile, one survivor is deemed to be in a critical state and is currently fighting for their life at a local hospital due to severe injuries to the head and facial region.
The other 23 survivors have been treated for injuries of a lesser degree and are being referred to as ‘out of danger,’ as explained by local media outlets.
