10 Killed as Grotto Collapses in Brazil

RIO DE JANEIRO Ten people were killed and seven others injured on Tuesday when a grotto collapsed following a Mass in the northern Brazilian town of Santa Maria do Tocantins, authorities said.

The worshippers with the most serious injuries were taken to the main hospital in Palmas, capital of Tocantins state.

The traditional Mass for All Saints Day was celebrated in the open air, outside the grotto known as the Stone House, which collapsed on a group of women who entered the structure at the conclusion of the service to pray, officials in Santa Maria told EFE.

Police, firefighters and paramedics from the closest large town, Pedro Alfonso, went to the scene to provide assistance, the state government said.

Santa Maria is a community of some 3,000 residents located 215 kilometers (134 miles) from Palmas.
