The Dallas Cowboys training facility, which held their rookie camp, collapsed due to serious thunderstorms and heavy winds.

Four people were injured as a result.

Irving, Texas fire and rescue workers have reported that everyone has been accounted for, but they are still checking debris and rubble. Many players were still wearing helmets at the time, and helped rescue a reporter that had been trapped under debris while rain came down.

A coach is receiving treatment for head trauma, but the other three injured people are unknown. It is not known if they are players, coaches, or just workers.

The roof of the building collapsed first, after it started to tremble and light fixtures were shaking. It was an air-supported canopy with aluminum frames covering a 100-yard field.

More to come later.

Start praying to whoever you believe in.
