Two Fall From Cowboys Stadium Roof

Dallas Cowboys website and Yahoo Sports are reporting that two maintenance workers have fallen off the Cowboys Stadium roof.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP)—Two maintenance workers who were not wearing safety harnesses fell from the roof area of towering Cowboys Stadium on Thursday morning, and at least one suffered serious injuries, authorities said.

The two were working on the top hatch of the retractable-roof venue around 7:20 a.m. when they slipped, Assistant Fire Chief Don Crowson said. They were not using “fall protection,” he said.

Both workers were transported to hospitals. Crowson said one man was severely injured but he had no details.

The National Weather Service said temperatures were near freezing at the time of the accident.

Keep these men in your prayers. Cowboys Stadium is one of the largest structures in the world, I can’t imagine why they weren’t wearing safety harnesses. I hope everyone comes out of this okay.
