Sao Paulo: A construction worker at Sao Paulo's troubled World Cup stadium was killed after falling from a stand on Saturday, bringing the number of deaths at the venue to three.
Fabio Hamilton da Cruz, fell eight metres (26 feet) as he helped install temporary seating at the ground and was taken to hospital where his condition had been described as serious.
His employers said in a statement that he was observing all the necessary safety standards at the ground which will host the opening game of the World Cup between hosts Brazil and Croatia on June 12.
In a statement, sports minister Aldo Rebelo expressed his “profound regret" at the news of da Cruz's death and added that an investigation would be immediately launched.
Saturday's tragedy came just two days after FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke had admitted progress on the Sao Paulo stadium remained a concern.
