The landslide happened near Tutumbaru in Ayna District, on the road between Ayacucho and San Francisco. Whilst the report with the video indicates that there were two fatalities, this newspaper article (in Spanish) indicates that this is incorrect, and only one death occurred – the driver of the truck.
