Security guard sets nursery on fire, kills 5 toddlers

TWITTER

Four toddlers and six adults have died after a security guard reportedly attacked a nursery school and began setting people alight.

A security guard in province of Minas Gerais, Brazil, has lost five lives as a result of an attack on a flammable substance.

According to witnesses, Soares dos Santos set fire to himself in one of the three rooms in the facility, and after, he started heading in the direction of the children. "He has been an employee since 2008 and has never had a bad record so we could never have anticipated something of this nature happening", Mayor of Janauba, Carlos Isaildon Mendes, told the media.

Around 50 people were injured, 15 of them seriously, as the blaze ripped through the Innocent People nursery in Janauba, southeastern Brazil. He later died after succumbing to burn injuries in a local hospital.

The dead children were aged four, the G1 news website reported.

But police superintendent Renato Nunes told the website of the Hoje em Dia newspaper that the guard had mental health problems since 2014. Evacuation would have been more hard. Most of injuries were children between 4 and 5 years old.

Officers found numerous bottles of alcohol at his home, Nunes said. "I want to express my solidarity with the families".

"I deeply regret this tragedy with the children in Janaúba (MG)".

As the father of a school-age child, the president said that he understood "this must be an extremely painful loss" for the parents.
