Another World Cup construction death in Brazil

(CNN) — A construction worker in Brazil died early Saturday after falling off the roof of the World Cup stadium in the Amazonian city of Manaus, state-run Agencia Brasil reported.

Five workers have died on construction sites of World Cup stadiums under construction in Brazil — hosting next year’s international soccer tournament.

The worker fell 35 meters from the roofing structure and was rushed to the hospital, where he died of his injuries.
