This footage is just beyond crazy and scary.
During a soccer match between Sao Paulo and Gremio at a soccer stadium in Brazil, a terrifying moment was caught on camera plummeting 40 feet from the rafters before landing on a 13-year-old girl.
“Fans can be seen cheering in the 66,795-capacity stadium before the supporter, named in reports as Lago de Melo Rios, plunges off the side.
Local media reports have claimed the 23-year-old had climbed the railings that guards the stands before he fell. The supporter then lands on top of the 13-year-old. Both of the fans received treatment in the stadium before two ambulances rushed them to hospital.
It is understood that de Melo Rios is undergoing tests at Campo Limbo hospital as he is suspected to have suffered a broken femur. The young girl did not suffer any serious injuries, according to reports.”
“His girlfriend called me and said she had seen it on the internet,” Rios’ mother, Lilian Barcelos de Melo, told local media. “She saw that someone had fallen in the stadium. She called him straightaway and someone answered the phone saying that it was him who had fallen from the top tier of the Morumbi, just minutes after it happened. It was a real scare.”
She has since confirmed “he is well” and that all his vital organs are “stable.”
