A Worker Dies After Falling From Brazil World Cup Soccer Stadium
It's been far from all smiles for Brazil in the months leading up to the World Cup. People are dyingin the construction of the hosting stadiums, including two workers at the Arena Corinthians thanks to a falling crane that caused a large section of the stadium to collapse. Brazil is still behind on construction and there's another death to report.
Marcleudo de Melo Ferreira, who was 22 years old, fell to his death when a cable broke while he was working on the roof of Amazon stadium in Manaus. This stadium is also set to host the World Cup.
The accident will delay construction until Sunday, another setback for a country that's struggling to meet its end of the year deadline. Meeting deadlines isn't worth the the cost of human life, however.
