Organizers said Friday's accident did not interfere in the construction of the stadium. The crane had been removed from the venue's main construction area and was at a site across the street.
In December, a worker at the Arena da Amazonia died after falling 115 feet while working on the stadium roof, prompting a work stoppage of four days as authorities inspected safety conditions. Another worker died there in March after falling from a scaffold and hitting his head. Also in December, a worker died of a heart attack while paving an area outside the venue.
In late November, two workers were killed when a crane collapsed while hoisting a 500-ton piece of roofing at the stadium that will host the World Cup opener in Sao Paulo. In 2012, a worker died at the construction site of the stadium in the nation's capital, Brasilia.
