SEVEN FEARED DEAD IN BRAZIL AFTER CLIFF COLLAPSES ON BOATS.

Seven persons are feared dead after part of a cliff collapsed onto Leisure Boats on a Brazilian Lake.

The incident happened when a tower of rocks suddenly broke away from the canyon wall and came down on many leisure boats in the area. It triggered a massive wave in the lake at Capitolio, in Minas Gerais State.

Local fire officials said another three persons were missing and 32 have been injured following the accident in the south-east of the country.

They said the collapse followed days of rain which had made the cliffs more susceptible to collapse.

Divers and helicopters are searching the water for any more survivors.
