The victims were taken to the municipal hospital with bruises and have already been discharged. The two women with the most critical condition were taken to hospitals in the region and remain hospitalized.
A video shows the gym’s twisted structure:
The corporation explained that the structure was destroyed due to strong winds during the storm that took over the city.
According to Metsul Meteorologia, satellite images point to a cluster of heavy clouds in the northwest region of Rio Grande do Sul, which causes intense rain, mainly in the spring and summer seasons.
Firefighters reported that there was more damage throughout the city, with trees and poles falling.
