A day of fun, water, and boats turned tragic when a gigantic rock appeared to break free and crash down on boaters on Furnas Lake in Brazil. According to reports, the incident occurred on Saturday when the boulder dislodged and slammed down on the unexpected partiers. So far, at least six people have been confirmed dead, with another 32 injured. And that number could climb as officials are claiming 20 people are still missing.
While the reports are shocking enough, surprisingly, people were filming when the rock fell from the cliff and practically crushed the boats underneath it. In the video below, boats are shown driving closer to the cliff as the rock ultimately becomes dislodged, sending it directly on top of the unexpected boaters underneath.
Another clip that was uploaded online clearly shows the two boats sitting directly in front of the cliff. Not being able to move away in time, the people innocently watched as part of the cliff soared toward them. Sending water and debris into the air, the video cuts out as you can hear people screaming, glass breaking, and rocks continuing to rain down.
