Soccer World Cup cruise ship fatality

317 Soccer

Sadly it’s not all good news from Brazil at the end of a second week of scintillating football. A Mexican fan who had been toasting the success of his team at the World Cup jumped from the cruise ship MSC Divina as he seemingly tried to impress a fellow passenger. Mr. Jorge Alberto Lopez Amores, 28, shocked his friends  with a cry of “look at me!' before jumping to his death. Neither the vessel itself or the Brazilian navy which joined the search has found any trace of him. At the time of the incident, the ship was carrying 3,500 Mexican fans from Fortaleza to Recife under charter to a Mexican travel agency. See picture above of Mr. Amores (left) having a picture taken with Mexican striker Oribe Peralta Morones.
