Three days before the World Cup is set to start,one worker was killed and two others were injured in Sao Paulo.  Theconstruction workers were working on the monorail project that is meant to ease congestion near the airport during the World Cup.

The World Cup construction death toll is up to eight.

The monorail project has been prone to accidents.  It is so far behind now that it will no longer be ready for the World Cup and will likely be ready sometime next year.  24,000 fans are expected to be using public transportation starting today.

A beam fell on the three workers while they were working on the monorail.  The accident happened at 5:20pm on Monday.
