    The tragedy occurred on Wednesday when a group of 28 people attempted to form the famous five rings associated with the Olympics.

    National champion and holder of several South American records, Gustavo Correa Garcez, 39, and instructor, Guilherme Bastos Padilha, 47, fell to their deaths in the incident at Boituva, 117 kilometers (72 miles) from Sao Paulo.

    The Rio 2016 Games organizing committee said that the aerial show was not a part of the official preparations for the opening ceremony on August 5.
