SKorean fan drowns amid WCup celebration
A South Korean man drowned after jumping into a river to celebrate the country advancing to the second round of the World Cup.
Police said the 20-year-old university student, surnamed Lee, leaped into Seoul's Han River with three friends on Wednesday morning after South Korea held Nigeria to a 2-2 draw in their final group game and made it to the knockout phase.
Lee's friends quickly got out of the water but he failed to do so. Police say they later rescued Lee and took him to a nearby hospital but he died.
Police said one of Lee's friends told investigators they jumped to celebrate South Korea's advance.
