Muslide near Rio de Janeiro kills ten
Ten people were killed and 11 injured in a mudslide near Rio de Janeiro yesterday. The mudslide in the city of Niteroi was caused by heavy downpours.
People were killed and injured when a massive boulder rolled on top of six houses in the Boa Esperanca area.
The dead included a 3-year-old boy, two elderly women and a middle-aged man.
The death toll may rise. One resident told reporters that her 8-year-old granddaughter was buried underneath the rubble. She also said she managed to rescue her grandson who was taken to a hospital.
