Hugo Pereira, His Wife and Baby Killed in Cliff Collapsed
Pereira had been enjoying a day off at the beach with his wife, 32-year-old Stela Silva de Souza, their seven-month-old son, Sol de Souza Pereira, and their pet dog.
A young couple, their seven-month-old baby and their pet had no time to escape when the cliff came down on Tuesday.
The mum had reached for her son and had wrapped her body around him to protect him as the debris started falling in Pipa Beach in Tibau do Sul, in the north-eastern Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Norte.
But before they could flee the beach, the cliff came tumbling down and crushed the entire family, the Daily Star reports.
The hotspot is known to have the risk of cliff falls but the warnings were destroyed by the sea, authorities said.
Witness Igor Caetano, a nautical tour businessman, told local media the victims were sat close to the cliffs and that the mother was hugging her baby to try to protect him as the debris fell onto them.
He said: “We dug until we found the father, and then we found the mother and the child.
“The boy was still breathing. By chance, a doctor was passing by at the time. She tried to revive the child, but it wasn’t to be.”
