Police investigating surprisingly able wheelchair fans at the World Cup

June 20th, 2014

According to the Independent, police in Brazil are investigating incidents where supposedly disabled patrons have leapt out of their wheelchairs to celebrate goals. 

Fans were captured on CCTV and social media standing in the disabled section during the opening game at Sao Paulo. Police believe that tickets for the section were illegally transferred. 

FIFA has previously released tickets for the sections, citing a lack of demand. However, re-selling a ticket for more than face value is a crime in Brazil — and the disabled section tickets sell for less than half the cost of those in the regular sections.

Never ones to miss a chance for a joke, some Brazilians have cited the pictures as evidence that this World Cup is creating miracles. The police aren’t seeing the funny side of it, however.
