A statement on the website of Corinthians, the Brazilian club due to occupy the Itaquerao Stadium in Sao Paulo, said the number of workers killed was two, rather than the three initially reported.
In the early afternoon an accident in the work of Corinthians Arena caused the death of two workers - Fábio Luiz Pereira, 42, driver / operator, and Ronaldo Oliveira dos Santos, 44, assembler.
Shortly before 13:00, the crane that hoisted the last module of the structure of the metal roof of the stadium collapsed, causing the fall of the part of the circulation area of the east building - partially hitting the LED facade.
The structure of the grandstand was not compromised.
Teams of firemen are in place. At the moment, all efforts are focused to provide full assistance to the families of the victims.
