Marcleudo de Melo Ferreira, 22, a construction worker, fell 115 feet to his death after a cable broke.
Ferreira’s death was the fifth in a string of fatal accidents plaguing construction of Brazil’s 12 World Cup stadiums and heightened safety concerns surrounding construction of the stadiums.
FIFA released a statement regarding Ferreira’s death.
"FIFA and the Local Organising Committee (LOC) learnt of the death of the worker on Saturday at the Arena Amazonia site with great sadness," the statement read.
"We would like to send our most sincere condolences to his family, relatives, colleagues and friends."
Fatal accidents have occurred at three of Brazil’s 12 World Cup stadiums. On November 27, a crane collapsed killing two people at the World Cup stadium in Sao Paulo.
The World Cup is scheduled to take place in 12 cities in Brazil. But preparations have been delayed due to accidents, cost overruns, and public protest.
Sepp Blatter, FIFA president reached out to “God, Allah and whoever” for assistance in getting the stadiums ready for the World Cup.
An internal investigation into Ferreira’s death is being conducted by the Brazilian company, Andrade Gutierrez, contracted to build the stadium.
