The New York Daily News reports:
Soccer riots in Brazil claimed the life of a man who was killed by a toilet bowl thrown from the stands at Arruda Stadium, the latest scene of fan violence that has plagued the country in the lead-up to next month’s World Cup.
Globoesporte of Brazil reported that rioters ripped three tiolets from the stadium bathroom and tossed them from the stands during Friday night’s 1-1 draw between Santa Cruz and Parana. One of the toilets struck a fan identified as 26-year-old Paulo Ricardo Gomes da Silva, killing him instantly.
“The toilet was thrown from the stands and hit him full on,” police captain Wilson Queiroz told Globesporte.
“The victim was with someone at the time but everyone fled the scene after the incident.”
