2011 Super Bowl: Ice Falls From Cowboys Stadium Injuring At Least Five

The ice storm in Dallas is becoming a problem in many ways, the biggest of which has to do with travel into and around the area. Not only is it hazardous for drivers taking to the streets, but also those walking near Cowboys Stadium, site of Super Bowl 45. Earlier on Friday, ice came crashing down from the stadium, landing on a group of people and injuring five.

CNBC’s Darren Rovell posted a screen-cap of a local news report on the situation, which doesn’t look pretty.

So not only has it been impossible to get to Dallas ahead of the Super Bowl, but also dangerous to be in the city ahead of Sunday’s game. I can only imagine the damage done when sheets of ice fall from a tall structure such as Cowboys Stadium. With as many people as there are in the area — the stadium holds 100,000 and many more are expected to be around it this week — it truly is a hazardous situation.

Be careful out there with the weather frightful and ice pelting the area. For more from the game, check out our Super Bowl StoryStream.
