Safety fears rock Brazil again after 4 killed in Carnival float fire2/12/2013
Four people were killed during Brazil's Carnival celebrations Tuesday after a float caught fire when it hit a power line in the port city of Santos. The tragedy heightens the safety fears that have gripped Brazilian society since last month's horrific nightclub fire in Santa Maria, which claimed 239 lives. Lax enforcement of safety and fire codes has become even more controversial as Brazil prepares for its global spotlight as host of the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Summer Olympics. The deaths cast a shadow over the final day of Carnival, Brazil's most popular festival. [Source]
