At least 34 Dead, Hundreds Missing After Dam Bursts in Brazil

At least 34 people are dead and hundreds missing after a dam burst at a Brazilian iron mine, Friday.

The burst has caused severe flooding in the southeastern state of Minas Gerais.

Brazilian president Bolsonaro arrived in Minas Gerais, Saturday.

Around 200 rescuers were expected to be on the scene.

The CEO of vale, the Brazilian mining giant that manages the Feijao Mine, said the deadly dam burst is “Inexcusable.”

Speaking from Rio De Janiero, CEO Fabio Schvartsman said that his company had improved the condition of their dams after their last deadly disaster in 2015 in the city of Mariana.
