A Kenyan security guard who reportedly fell at the Lusail Stadium in Qatar has died in hospital, his family and officials confirmed.
John Njue Kibue who was on duty during the Argentina Vs Netherlands quarter finals game, had fallen from the 8th floor of the stadium while on duty, his sister Ann Wanjiru said.
“We don’t have the money to get justice for him, but we want to know what happened,” she told CNN.
According to a medical certificate, the 24-year-old passed away while in ICU after suffering a serious fall.
“We regret to announce that, despite the efforts of his medical team, he sadly passed away in hospital on Tuesday 13 December, after being in the intensive care unit for three days,” the statement added.
“His next of kin have been informed. We send our sincere condolences to his family, colleagues and friends during this difficult time.”
Earlier this week, the committee announced that Kibue suffered a serious fall while on duty.
“Qatar’s tournament organisers are investigating the circumstances leading to the fall as a matter of urgency and will provide further information pending the outcome of the investigation, ” it said in its statement.
“We will also ensure that his family receive all outstanding dues and monies owed.”
