Fan dies after being run over by Corinthians bus

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.
