At least one person was killed when an overpass bridge under construction collapsed in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, one of the host cities for the ongoing World Cup, firefighters said Thursday on Twitter.
Images that circulated on social media showed a bus trapped by the collapsed concrete structure. Another showed a crushed car.
The overpass is about four miles from the Estadio Mineirao where the World Cup games are being played in Belo Horizonte and was supposed to have been completed in time for the World Cup.
Preparations for the World Cup have been controversial and at some time marked by protests of which critics say the spending was lavish at the expense of public utilities.
Belo Horizonte will host the semifinal match between the winner of the France-Germany match and the winner of the Brazil-Colombia game.
