Brazilian media reported that the bodies of the family were found buried in a landslide. The mom was hugging her baby, as she probably tried to protect him. Sadly, all of them died. The baby was alive at the time rescue arrived, but his injuries were way too severe. He died a few moments later.
According to 7news.com, a local fisherman said how they are always warning tourists to stay away from the shadows of the cliffs. “I’m born and raised here and this has always happened because the sea is gradually destroying the cliff more and more,” he added.
