If Jerry Jones’ new billion-dollar stadium is hoping to help out the local economy, it’s already been a boon to the hospital business.
CBS 11 in Dallas reports that three workers at the new Cowboys stadium construction site in Arlington were injured in a crane accident on Thursday. One worker was airlifted to the hospital in critical condition after being struck by a crane cable.
Hopefully, some of that billion earmarked for the stadium has been set aside for workers’ insurance.
Strangely, this isn’t the first accident to befall workers at the stadium site.
The DALLAS MORNING NEWS recalls that in January 2007, a construction worker fell 20 feet from scaffolding onto the field. And last August, a worker was also struck by crane cables while working in the stadium’s upper deck.
Weird. Are the Cowboys building over some sacred Indian burial groud? Should we expect poltergeists to come swarming out of the super-sized scoreboard at the home opener?
