A video taken at Rio de Janeiro’s Maracana stadium shows fans climbing a wobbling staircase on their way to the game between Argentina and Bosnia. In the video, a flood of fans climb the staircase, which appears to be wobbling back and forth. Jorge Martinez, a Mexican systems engineer who used the stairs on Sunday, tells the Associated Press, “When people walk on it the wood moves, so with thousands of people walking up there, there could be an accident.” According to, technicians from Brazil’s State Civil Defense toured the site on Monday, and the government fired the company responsible for the installation of the event’s temporary structures.
