The death toll from devastating flooding in Brazil continued to climb Tuesday, surpassing 700, the government said. A helicopter rescued 18 people from a city in Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro state after rains caused devastating flooding and mudslides in the mountainous region, CNN reports. Four children – including a 30-day-old baby, were among those lifted to safety Monday. The Air Force said one of them — 6-year-old Guilherme Carvalho – summed up the feelings of the group with a simple exclamation: “Relief!” The death toll from flooding in Rio de Janeiro state has climbed to 710, according to government figures released Tuesday. And thousands are homeless across the state.
