A structure collapsed during monorail construction in Sao Paolo, Brazil, on Monday, killing one worker and injuring two others.
The monorail is intended to connect the city’s Congonhas Airport to three metro lines, ahead of the start of the FIFA World Cup on June 12, but the crew is already working way past deadline, the BBC reported.
A concrete support beam fell and dealt a deadly blow to one person laboring below, the Associated Press says. Officials are investigating the cause of its collapse.
The accident marks the latest in a series of stumbles as the country prepares to host the international soccer tournament, which will bring millions of tourist to the area. Sao Paolo is set to host the opening game. During the construction of Brazil’s 12 World Cup arenas, eight have reportedly died.
