Two people were injured this morning when they fell off the roof of the Cowboys Stadium near Dallas. The accident happened just before 7am Thursday in Arlington.

The two were working on the top hatch of the retractable-roof venue when they slipped. Arlington fire officials said the two workers were not using fall protection gear.

The workers fell from an upper roof to a lower section. Both suffered injuries; one has serious injuries.

Crews used baskets, lines and ladders to lower the workers in a rescue that took about 90 minutes.
