My thanks to Geoff who sent me this news in the form of a comment to a previous post.
"Sincere sympathy to the families of those killed and injured in the appalling accident on the historic Rio de Janeiro tramway.

Kath and I visited Rio in the late 1980s and travelled on this amazing tramway. We join Geoff in sending our sympathy.
