Three Injured In Crane Collapse At New Stadium

Some unfortunate news hit the Dallas Cowboys organization today after a crane collapsed during the construction of the new billion-dollar stadium. According to CBS 11TV, three people are injured.

Cowboys spokesman Brett Daniels tells CBS 11 News the accident happened while workers were in the process of assembling the crane.  One of the cables being used to assemble the crane either broke or became disconnected. Arlington Fire Department Battalion Chief Bill McQuatters said it’s possible that a back support structure on the crane failed, but it’s too early to know for sure.  McQuatters says one of the people injured jumped off the crane to the ground and another was on the ground when he was injured.

None of the injuries appears to be life-threatening, according to the report. You can view aerials of the scene here.
