Father and son FOUND dead on Brazilian rainforest nature trail ‘after being electrocuted’


A British holidaymaker and his son have been found dead on a rainforest nature trail in Brazil after they were seemingly electrocuted by a broken power cable.

The bodies of the two Brits were found on June 30 on a coastal trail in Ubatuba, São Paulo state, between a pair of popular beaches.


Investigators said their corpses sported burns consistent with receiving a powerful electric shock, while the father had one end of a broken mains power cable trapped underneath his leg, local media reported. 

In a heartbreaking twist, the worried niece of the father is said to have called his phone as investigators were identifying the bodies in a desperate attempt to locate him.


The father and son were only found when engineers from Elektro power company went to investigate a blackout at Bonete Beach – one of two beaches connected by the coastal trail.

Their car was later discovered in a nearby parking lot.
