A couple of American tourists was wounded in the morning of this Tuesday after the explosion of a gutter in the neighborhood of Copacabana, in the south area of Rio de Janeiro. Sarah Lari, 28 years old, had 80% of the burned body, while David Melaugheim, 31 years old, had 35% of the reached body.
The victims were directed to the Municipal Hospital Miguel Couto, in the Gávea, and the health condition of the American is considered serious. In agreement with the unit, the patients should be transferred to a private hospital.
This is the first terrorist attack of a gutter. Osama Bin Laden certainly should be thinking about using similar gutters in NY.
