Cowboy Stadium Falling Ice

Five of the injured were transported to local hospitals, one of them being critical. We're told the other injured person was transported by private vehicle.

A rep for the NFL tells TMZ: "The ice and snow melting off of the Cowboys Stadium roof has caused several sliding snow falls onto the plazas. There have been several injuries. All stadium entrances have been closed except for the truck tunnel, which is away from the building by a very safe distance. All workers and visitors will now enter and exit through the tunnel until further notice."

Thanks to myfoxdfw.com for the video.

GEE>>>>I'm sure the helicopter flying overhead wasn't at all responsible for making ANY ice slide off!!! ***WIND+ICE on a slippery surface= better looking people in Dallas!!!! A few were smart enough to look up at ice shards and receive facial rearrangment.

Wow Melissa. It is Arlington and not Dallas. And how nice of you to make fun of injured people. At least one of the people involved is in critical condition. Are you in Arlington causing the ice with your cold heartedness? Totally not cool. Completely classless.

The stadium is in Arlington, TX. Not Dallas. Why is the national news so ignorant?

Very sad for those involved. For those of you who are going off about the super bowl being in ARLINGTON get a clue. I live in a small town outside of Dallas but do I tell people that, NO because they wouldn't know where in the hell I am talking about. No one has EVER heard of Arlington on a national level so they say Dallas because it's recognizable. The only thing Arlington is good for is Six Flags and the Rangers. If the game was held was in Flint Michigan they would say it was in Detroit. Also, it's the DALLAS cowboys not the Arlington cowboys.

Gee, I guess that brand new stadium is just a death trap! People died and got injured when the stadium was made. And now, snow falling off the roof injures people. They must have discounted the possibility of it snowing. LAWSUIT.
