More Bodies Found Following Brazilian Dam Incident

Brazil dam break

The death toll from a Friday dam burst  at mining operating is climbing to 34.  Officials estimate somewhere between 250 to 300 people are still missing as searchers look through  deep mud for more bodies.  There were intermittent rains on Saturday  complicating the search.  The mine was granted an expedited license to  expand in December because it was considered a decreased risk. The dam  that burst was made of earth and held back waste material from the  mines.  Nearly two dozen people are being treated for injuries.  Many of  the missing were miners who were eating lunch in the mine's offices.
