A walkway on top of the float on which dancers were standing toppled early on Tuesday, sending them tumbling. The incident came a day after 20 people were injured at the Sambadrome when a float crushed them against a fence. Police are investigating both incidents. 'Moment of despair' The float represented Bourbon Street in New Orleans and members of the samba school were dancing on walkways made to look like balconies when the upper walkway gave way. "We heard a burst on the top. People started screaming, we didn't understand what it was," eyewitness Felix Souza said. "It was a moment of despair for all there."
