SANTOS  - Brazilian presidential candidate Eduardo Campos, a contender to unseat President Dilma Rousseff in elections in October, died Wednesday when his private jet crashed in the city of Santos, media network Globo reported.

Campos, a socialist who has been running third in the polls, and his running mate, ecologist Marina Silva, were on board a jet that crashed into a gymnasium in a residential area, breaking into pieces and sparking a large fire, Globo reported on its news TV channel and websites.
