    The afternoon practice ended in horrifying fashion when the Cowboys' indoor facility collapsed.



    While a violent thunderstorm pounded rain down on the roof, the lights started shaking back and forth. Then chaos broke out, as the facility collapsed and players, coaches, reporters and team personnel scrambled for safety.



    Several people were trapped under the wreckage. Police and emergency personnel have arrived on the scene.
    More to come.


    UPDATE: According to a Cowboys spokesman, at least four members of the team's support staff are being taken to the hospital. All players and coaches are believed to be safe. Rescue personnel is still searching through the debris.

    Could be worse, it could wipe out there new billion dollar stadium.

    Why would that be worse? Because the Razorbacks play the Aggies there this year. :D
