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.
