Event Date: 9-1-1986
Event Description: That night at a Rio de Janairo morgue the caretakers are attacked by what they claim to be as 7 blood-thirsty corpses. Police discount their story as alcohol induced aggresion. But later they discover that bodies of the 7 rescue party members are missing. By this time reports of of walking corpses are coming from all over the city.

Looting is rampant. The mayor has activated units of the army to attempt to help the situation. They are of little help because they don't know that a shot to the torsea didn't work against them. Many are killed. Even worse news comes from the Amazon. Hordes of "undead" are moving out of the jungle.
