TOILET KILLS BRAZILIAN FOOTBALL FAN

0

A Brazilian football fan has died after being hit by a toilet bowl thrown at the end of a Second Division match in the north-eastern city of Recife.

Paulo Ricardo Gomes da Silva was struck as clashes took place near one of the entrances to Arruda stadium.

Another three people were reportedly hurt as toilet bowls were ripped out of stadium facilities and hurled at rival fans below.

Recife is one of the host cities of the World Cup, due to start on June 12.

But the matches will be hosted at another stadium in Recife, the Arena Pernambuco, which has been especially built for the tournament.

The clashes took place on Friday night after local side Santa Cruz drew 1-1 with Parana, from southern Brazil.

The visiting side’s fans were leaving the stadium when the toilet bowls were thrown out of the upper tiers of the Arruda stadium, reports the BBC.
