Family dies as boat sinks in Lima river

A 41-year-old woman and her two elderly parents died yesterday when the little boat in which they were transporting wood overturned in the Lima river, near Santa Maria de Portuzelo, near Viano do Castelo. Say reports, the family had crossed the river to collect wood from land they owned and were returning home when the accident happened. Authorities suspect the tragedy was precipitated by the weight of wood in the boat.
