Olympic construction deaths

Just saw this really good piece on the BBC's website about the still-rising death toll in the construction for the Games - they think as many as 40 workers may now have died in work related to the Olympics. As I've said before, I think it will be outrageous if the IOC don't figure something into the Games (ideally the opening ceremony) to pay tribute to these over-worked, under-paid labourers who have, quite literally, given their lives to make the Games happen.
