Brazil dam collapses, releasing deadly flow of mud

A dam in south-east Brazil collapsed on Friday (Jan 25), unleashing a torrent of mud that killed an as-yet-undetermined number of people living in an area close to the city of Belo Horizonte, a local fire service official said.

Emergency services were still responding to the situation in and around the town of Brumadinho and did not yet have a precise toll, the official told AFP.

"According to accounts that we are receiving, there were several deaths," the official said.

Television images taken from the air showed a wide swath of devastation cut through vegetation and farmland. Several homes were seen, many damaged and some destroyed, with nothing but their tiled roofs left sitting on mud.

A rescue helicopter was seen hovering close to two survivors trapped up to their waist in mud, with its crew trying to pull them to safety.
