"The crane operator moved the piece about 50 meters and then left for lunch. Someone must have told him to do that because you aren't supposed to move the crane with the piece on it," 23-year-old loader operator Sergio Almeida told me at the site of the Itaquerão stadium collapse. "It was the last one. But it kept swinging. He tried to right it, but when he saw what was going to happen, he jumped."

My story for Fortune Magazine about the MTST, affordable housing in São Paulo and how the World Cup might affect it all http://fortune.com/2014/06/10/brazil-tent-cities-world-cup/
Thousands of families have occupied a stretch of land just four kilometers away from the site of the opening game of the World Cup to protest the lack of affordable housing in Brazil.
