At least 16 killed in Brazilian pre-Carnival party

At least 16 people were killed in southern Brazil at a pre-Carnival party when a power line burst over a party truck, electrocuting revelers, the Minas Gerais state fire department said Monday, the CNN informs. The accident happened Sunday night during festivities in Bandeira do Sul, about 190 miles north of Sao Paulo. Coiled party ribbon thrown into the air may have hit the power line and caused it to come loose, the fire department said.
