Brazil risking reputation on World Cup, Olympics

A collapsed metal structure sits on the ground at Itaquerao Stadium in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Wednesday, Nov. 27, 2013. The accident that resulted in the death of at least two workers, occurred when a construction crane crashed into a 500-ton metal structure that in turn cut through the outer walls of the venue, destroying rows of seats and slamming into a massive LED panel that runs across the stadium's facade. The stadium is slated to host the 2014 World Cup opener.
