How To Watch The FIFA World Cup Final: Everything To Know Reuters / PAUL CHILDS

A security guard working at the FIFA World Cup died after he reportedly fell from the 8th floor of Lusail Stadium in Qatar while he was on duty.

A Kenyan security guard, identified as 24-year-old John Njau Kibue, fell from the 8th floor of Qatar’s Lusail Stadium while he was on duty in the early hours of Saturday, Dec. 10 after Argentina’s quarter-final victory over the Netherlands. However, despite the treatment, after undergoing treatment for three days, he sadly passed away in a hospital on Tuesday, Dec. 13, CNN reported.

“We don’t have the money to get justice for him, but we want to know what happened,” his sister Ann Wanjiru said.

According to a medical certificate provided, Kibue suffered “severe head injury, facial fractures, and pelvic fractures” in the fall and was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at Hamad General Hospital in Doha.

Following the incident, the organizers of the World Cup, the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy, announced Kibue’s death.

“We regret to announce that, despite the efforts of his medical team, he sadly passed away in the hospital on Tuesday, Dec. 13 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.”

“Qatar’s tournament organizers 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 receives all outstanding dues and monies owed.”

Meanwhile, the security guard’s family says his Qatari employer, Al Sraiya Security Services, has not explained how he fell or any of the circumstances surrounding his death, the Guardian reported.

“We want justice. We want to know what caused his death. They have never sent us a picture to show where he fell from or given us any other information,” his sister Wanjiru said.

The guard’s family says he moved to Qatar for a contract with Al Sraiya Security Services last November.

He is the second migrant worker reported dead since the tournament began. Recently, another worker was reportedly killed in an accident at a resort used by Saudi Arabia during the group stages.
