Sao Paulo, Brazil - A construction worker has died while working on the monorail for this year's World Cup.
Two other people were injured when a beam fell late Monday.
Work on the metro system was originally meant to be done before the sporting event to help fans move around the congested city. However, the government had been warning since 2011 that the project would not be completed in time.
The World Cup begins on Thursday. It is not yet clear if the accident will affect the event.
