 ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - A cable snapped as a construction crane was being lifted off the ground Thursday at the Dallas Cowboys' new stadium, injuring at least three people, a team spokesman said.
One worker was hit by the cable and flown to a hospital, Cowboys spokesman Brett Daniels said. Two other workers managed to jump out of the way of the cable but were taken to a hospital by ambulance, Daniels said.
There was no immediate word on the workers' conditions. All three were conscious when they left the site, said Jack Hill, director of stadium construction for the team.
A spokeswoman at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas confirmed one person was brought to the hospital from the accident scene, but could not provide more information.
Emergency officials didn't immediately return calls seeking comment.
The three workers were wearing protective safety equipment, Hill said. They all work for subcontractor Derr Steel Erection, which did not immediately respond to a phone message.
The more-than-$1-billion retractable-roof stadium is scheduled to open for the 2009 season and will seat 80,000 people. It also will be home to the 2011 Super Bowl.
Thursday's accident came one day after a crane hook plummeted to the ground in Dallas after a cable snapped, killing a worker at a condominium project.
