Three Dead in Crane Collapse at Brazilian World Cup Venue

Brazil is supposed to have construction completed on all sites by the end of the year, but may mis that deadline


Itaquerao Stadium in Sao Paulo, one of the twelve massive stadiums being prepped for this summer's World Cup, was the site of tragedy on Wednesday, when a crane collapse killed three people. "I saw the piece of the crane was lifting, balance in the air, suddenly it started to shake and fell on to the stadium," said a witness. "I heard a very loud boom, as if an entire building was falling."
