Elano causes a human avalanche during Gremio v LDU Quito

It has become the norm in Brazil for all stadiums to have a fence separating the fans from the players.

In Gremio’s victory over LDU Quito on Wednesday night in the Copa Libertadores qualification the fence was broken by a human avalanche.

This avalanche arose after ex-Manchester City man, Elano scored an absolute screamer for the Brazilian side.

Although a human avalanche happens regularly in South America this one caused problems.

As thousands of people rushed towards the fence it broke under the pressure causing some injuries to the spectators involved.
