A construction worker who was injured on Friday while disassembling a crane has died.  He is the third worker to die at this site in less than a year, and now workers are threatening strike.

Union Leader Cicero Custodio said, "We have to guaruntee the workers' rights and their safety."

Corruption, labor problems, and delays on the work at some of the stadiums and transportation infrastructure in Brazil has failed to meet the deadlines set by FIFA, which could be a cause for the numerous accidents.  Construction workers are most likely being pressured to work faster.
