A large section of rock from a cliff at Furnas Lake in Brazil collapsed on Saturday (Jan. 8), killing at least seven people and leaving nine others seriously injured.Video footage recorded by passengers of boats on the lake showed how the rock column broke off from the cliff face and fell onto boats carrying tourists.

The lake is located in Minas Gerais state and is famous for the rock walls, caverns and waterfalls that surround it.Moments before the accident, small rocks and sedimentation could be seen cascading down from the cliff face into the water.A huge slab of rock then detaches and plunges into the lake below, creating a huge wave and sending fragments of rock flying.
