Amauri’s son, tattoo artist Rafael Rodrigo de Lima was playing on the electric trio that accompanied the procession and saw when the minibus ran over the victims.

“When we were up there, they asked everyone to stay and the electric trio went down first to wait in case there was a brake problem and nothing like that happened. The electric trio came down and we stayed here. In the videos that are circulating on social media, you see it clearly. My wife is the one singing and shouting: ‘My God, my God'”, said Rafael Rodrigo.

According to Rodrigo, the vehicle took a while to stop after skidding on the road.

“He [o micro-ônibus] left, came along the side of the sidewalk, entered the road, catching everyone who was in the procession and came over [cada] person. And he only stopped because of the number of people who were under the bus”, reported the victim’s son.

According to the tattoo artist, Amauri was very religious. “My father was one of the people who most defended the Catholic faith, sometimes even blindly,” said Rafael Rodrigo.
