Two injured in Rio by falling overhead camera

Two women were struck when an aerial camera fell in the Olympic Park on Monday afternoon.

Reports indicate that Flavio Oliveira was just getting out of a handball match with his nephew when he heard the wires come crashing to the ground.

He said the cable whipped against two girls, hitting one of them in the neck.

Pollyanna Padua, an Olympic worker who was working nearby, said the cable fell and injured two adult women.
