At least 12 people were injured when part of a parade float collapsed in the Sambadrome at Rio de Janeiro’s carnival on Tuesday. Video of the incident shows the top section of the Unidos da Tijuca float, which was meant to represent New Orleans’ Bourbon Street, collapse under the people dancing on it. The accident follows an incident on Monday when 20 people were crushed against a wall at the same stadium by an out of control float.
