The accident happened this morning on the Tim Maia cycling path, which joins the districts of Sao Conrado and Leblon, when a large wave hit one of its support pillars, leading a section of it to collapse.
A 50-meter stretch of the cycling path, which had only been opened in January, fell apart, killing two people and leading to searches by the fire brigade for a third.
The path was built alongside the Niemeyer Avenue and opened in January to link up with two other, older sections. Running for 3.9km, the cycling path cost the city 44.7 million reais ($12.6 million).
Speaking from Athens, Greece, where he was attending the Olympic Flame lighting ceremony, Rios mayor Eduardo Paes said that “what has happened is unforgivable” and promised “an immediate investigation into the facts”, according to Brazilian daily O Globo.0Related StoriesFlame for Rio Olympics lit in ancient Greek ruinsRio Games countdown starts with torch lightingBackground: Ritual of Lighting Ceremony for 2016 Rio Olympic GamesRio 2016 to release new batch of ticketsRio 2016 chief: There will be no complacencyPolitical crisis will not harm Rio Olympics: RousseffChinese shooting team in Rio to warm up for OlympicsRio 2016 organizers reveal final test event scheduleRios Olympic Park is 98% readyPhotoUNs top environmental honors go to three in ChinaGerman trains collide near Duesseldorf, several people injuredLiu heralds UK partnership in education and researchEfforts needed for sustainable projects1st Panda cub born in France named Yuan MengFree trade studies agreed on as Li meets with Canadian PM TrudeauChina-JapanChina-USChina-AfricaChina-EuropeLi tells Japanese business leaders its time for bilateral cooperationChina-Japan meet seeks cooperationGroup of lawmakers visit notorious Yasukuni Shrine in JapanJapan can offer experience, expat saysChina-Japan ties seen at dialogue as benefit to regionChina, Japan officials exchange views on security issues at 15th dialogueChinese music finds new foothold in United StatesC919 flies toward air worthinessPolitical leaders: Sino-US relations to growChina vows steps after US launches probe into aluminum tradeGates is added to top-tier Chinese academyYao helps AB InBev fight alcohol abuseAction urged over pollutionUNs top environmental honors go to three in ChinaChina unveils Model Confucius Institute edifice in Ghana universityChina vows to deepen bilateral ties with new Zimbabwe govtChinese, African parties meet to share wisdom on modernization2nd China-Africa Investment Forum begins in MoroccoLiu heralds UK partnership in education and researchPeak performance by Chinese nurse on Scotlands mountains9-month festival of Chinese art, heritage to be staged in Liverpool, UK, next yearChina eyes closer economic, trade cooperation with BelarusPremier calls to enhance trade liberalization and facilitation in SCOPremier: China to advance production capacity with UzbekistanAsia PacificUS & CanadaEuropeAfricaMiddle EastChinese tourists go to South KoreaChina-Japan meet seeks cooperationUN envoys trip to DPRK praised by BeijingBelt and Road a great opportunity: Uzbek officialKwaussie wins Australias word of the yearJapan can offer experience, expat saysTrudeau visits Sina WeiboChina, Canada agree to issue joint statement on climate changeDemocrats stand united against GOP tax billUS quits talks on global migration pactTensions triggered over possible moveSino-Canadian bilateral trade ties to deepen furtherMay gets little gasp as EU extends deadline for sufficient progress in Brexit talksRussia banned from Pyeongchang Winter OlympicsGerman trains collide near Duesseldorf, several people injuredLiu heralds UK partnership in education and researchBoth first ladies name panda cub Yuan MengLiu Yandong heralds bilateral cooperation in education and researchEthiopian FM urges strengthened Ethiopia-China tiesUNs top environmental honors go to three in ChinaAction urged over pollutionBelt and Road Initiative to help countries achieve UN goals: officialChina unveils Model Confucius Institute edifice in Ghana universityMorocco king holds historic talks with South African president in AbidjanYemens ex-president Saleh, relatives killed by HouthisTrump recognition of Jerusalem as Israeli capital would raise regional tensionsYemen rattled by raids as clashes spreadSquash a perfect match for girl refugees in JordanSyrian talks in Geneva to continue to Dec 15: UN envoyAll parties in Syria urged to join talksMost PopularHot TopicsMyanmar electionChina and JapanDPRKSyrias refugee crisisGreek debt crisisSouth China SeaMH370Iran nuclear talksMERS virusNepal earthquakeReporters JournalFound in China: a hard case of sellers remorseSilicon Valley cant forget to have a heartHigh-speed trains would be even better with quiet carsHighlightsXi visits Czech Republic, attends nuclear security summit in the USLancang-Mekong cooperation leaders meetingJohn Kerry visits China…| About China Daily | Advertise on Site | Contact Us | Job Offer | Expat Employment |Copyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
