SHOCKING: Football fan pushed to his death in Argentina

An Argentine football fan died Monday after being pushed from a stand at a derby match by an angry crowd who thought he was a rival supporter, officials said. Emanuel Balbo, 22, fell five meters (17 feet) at his football team Belgrano’s stadium in the northern city of Cordoba on Saturday, video images showed.

He had quarreled with a man whom he accused of being responsible for the death of Balbo’s brother in a traffic accident in 2012, the victim’s father Raul said on television. Witnesses said the man responded by shouting that Balbo was a disguised fan of Belgrano’s derby rivals in the match, Talleres.

That prompted the crowd to attack Balbo, who fled down the steps before being pushed over the edge of the stand. He lay for two days with severe head injuries in hospital, where doctors declared him brain dead.
