>> Video of this dramatic rescue has gone viral in Brazil. Following last week's deadly dam collapse in the town of Brumadinho. 33 year old Jefferson Ferrero was out looking for his sister, among the trail of destruction, when he heard of a report that someone was still alive in the mud.
Thinking it might be his sister, Ferrera rushed to the site with a friend where he saw a fifteen year old girl trapped in the mud.>>
> Her femur was broken. She broke her hip too. She was screaming out of pain and nervousness.>> Ferrera stayed by her side until a helicopter carried her to safety.
So far, rescue teams have recovered the bodies of 99 people buried after the rupture last week of Vale Dam. In the wake of the disaster, the world's largest iron ore miners said it would take up to 10% of its production off line and spend nearly $1.3 billion to decommission ten dams.
Like the one that collapsed on Friday. Vale has also promised to donate 100,000 riel or roughly $27,000 US to the family of each victim. But the company's moves have been ignored or derided by residents, many of whom are in shock. 250 people are still missing and the hope of finding survivors is fading.
The rescue that catapulted Ferrara to fame was a bitter sweet moment as his sister still remains missing.
