A family lost to Brazil's rains

One man's struggle to find his family in the ruins of a village ravaged by mudslides.

    Nearly a week after Brazil's worst mudslides in decades, bodies are still being found and many communities remain cut off.

    Hundreds of people are confirmed dead after floodwaters swept through mountain towns north of Rio de Janeiro and more are expected to be found.

    Al Jazeera's Gabriel Elizondo met one man struggling to dig out the bodies of his family in the mountain village of Teresopolis.
