A nurse plunged 60 feet to her death after slipping through a hole in a rickety zip line platform.

Pretty Yasmili Araujo, 23, had gone with her boyfriend and pals to a water park on July 2.

And he even claimed it had only been hastily installed the morning recent graduate died.

He said: "It was assembled at the last minute, it was ready on the morning of the 2nd.

"They did it very quickly, possibly this rush in the assembly of this structure is a preponderant factor in trying to explain what happened."

The park did not respond to the allegation.

In a statement, the water park wrote: "Piracema Park Club provided all support and attention to the young woman's family and, after the accident, closed the activities of the attraction...

"Which will only return to operation after investigation by the relevant authorities regarding the causes of the accident."
