At least 17 people are missing today after floodwaters caused the collapse of a bridge in the southern Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul, authorities said. The rain-swollen Jacui River brought down a bridge near the municipality of Agudo, where crowds of curiosity-seekers had gathered to see the rising waters, police Col. João Carlos Trindade Lopes told radio Gaucha. Trindade said that between 25-30 people fell in the water when the bridge collapsed and emergency services units were able to pull eight of them out of the current alive.
