Hundreds missing in Brazil, 34 found dead, after Vale dam burst

Video provided to Reuters showed a rescue helicopter ferrying a victim’s body to a field near where family members of the missing gathered in Brumadinho, Brazil.

The dam ruptured on Friday (January 25), releasing a torrent of mining waste that slammed into Vale’s facilities and cut through a nearby community, leaving a roughly 150-meter-wide (500-foot-wide) wake of destruction stretching for miles (km).

Some 250 people remained missing, according to a list released by Vale. All of those missing are Vale employees or contractors, a police spokesman said.

The search is set to resume on Sunday morning.
