Crane Collapse At São Paulo's Itaquera Stadium To Delay Completion Until February
Published December 2, 2013
BRAZIL SCRAMBLING: The AP reported even before a crane "dramatically collapsed and killed two workers at the Sao Paulo stadium, it was clear World Cup organizers would have their hands full trying to deliver all 12 venues by FIFA's end-of-December deadline." Wednesday's accident "immediately raised doubts about Brazil's preparedness to host football's showcase event." The timing could "not have been worse," putting the country under "even more pressure" just days before the int'l football community "begins arriving for a high-profile World Cup draw" (AP, 11/30).
