News: Brazilian Soccer Fan Killed By Hurled Toilet Bowl

Should be an interesting World Cup this year. Jeez. From The Daily Mail.
Brazilian soccer fan is killed instantly by a TOILET BOWL hurled from the stadium to the street below by rival supporters

Just 40 days before the nation hosts the FIFA World Cup, a soccer fan in Brazil has died after being hit in the head by a toilet bowl thrown following a match in the host city of Recife.

Paul Ricardo Gomes da Silva was killed after Santa Cruz played Parana at the Arruda stadium on Friday, when rioting fans ripped three toilet bowls from restrooms and dropped them on crowds below the stands.

Estimated to have landed with more than 750 pounds of force, the 26-year-old fan died instantly and his mother, Joelma told local radio, 'They killed my son and me too - I would not wish the pain I am suffering on anybody.'

Recife is one of the host cities of the World Cup, due to start on 12 June and Brazil's soccer association decided on Saturday to ban matches in the Arruda stadium until an investigation has concluded.

'The toilet was thrown from the stands and hit him full on,' said police captain Wilson Queiroz to Globesporte.

'The victim was with someone at the time but everyone fled the scene after the incident.'
