26 year old football fan Paulo Ricardo Gomes da Silva was killed after he was hit by a toilet bowl thrown from the stands of the Arruda stadium. Three other fans, who attended the game between Santa Cruz and Paraná, were injured. One is in hospital with serious, but not life threatening head injuries.
The victim worked as a welder in a shipbuilding factory in Cabo de Santo Agostinho, the metropolitan region of Recife in Pernambuco (that’s where Caruaru is), Brazil.
The police acquired CCTV video which shows the bowl hitting a group of football fans after it was hurled form the stadium, but not who threw it.
The incident happened on May2, 2014. Thus far, no arrests have been made, nor suspects identified.
