Part of the Arena Corinthians, future site of the World Cup opening ceremony in June 2014, has collapsed, reportedly killing three. The stadium, located in Sao Paulo, Brazil, was still under construction with a set completion date of December, and the BBC reports that a crane collapsed onto the structure, breaking off part of the stands as seen in this photograph from the Futebolnopronto Twitter account.
