With the Brazil-hosted World Cup just weeks away, the country should not be making national headlines for something as tragic and absurd as, let's say, a fan dying after getting hit in the head with a toilet bowl. This is an oddly specific example because it actually happened.

After a match between Santa Cruz and Parana at Arruda Stadium, fans ripped off three toilet bowls from the stadium's restroom and threw them from the stands. One of those bowls hit a fan in the head and instantly killed him.

This is terrible for obvious reasons. Brazilian security has to step it up when the World Cup comes; there's already been too many tragedies on the road to the event.
