A terrifying video aired on Brazilian media last week shows the exact moment a dam burst in Brazil. The dam break at an iron ore mining complex operated by the minerals firm Vale killed at least 65 people. A further 279 are missing.
The wall of sludge and mud from the dam is seen encroaching from the left side of the screen as vehicles move around on the right side but they are eventually covered by the mud.
The dam failure unleashed a surge of mud that buried buildings adjoining the dam and several parts of the nearby city of Brumadinho. Cars can be seen driving around desperately trying to escape as a dramatic gush of mud approaches.
