Corinthians bus runs over female fan
Authorities say a 21-year-old woman has died after being run over by a bus carrying Corinthians players at a party in Sao Paulo to celebrate the Brazilian team’s centenary.
The fan died in a hospital early Wednesday. Officials said it appeared she slipped near the bus’ back wheel as it passed near supporters trying to get a glimpse of the players.
Police said about 100,000 fans gathered at a city plaza for the festivities commemorating the anniversary of Brazil’s second most popular club behind Flamengo.
