Report: Dallas staffers hurt in storm

Four staff members of the Dallas Cowboys were injured Saturday when an intense storm hit the team's training facility, team officials said.

Emergency medical personnel were called to the site of the team's indoor facility in Arlington, which collapsed during the club's rookie minicamp.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported there were no fatalities, but secondary coach Brett Maxie suffered a leg laceration, and special teams coach Joe DeCamillis was taken to the hospital on a stretcher after he was initially spotted walking around and appeared to be OK.

Media members were asked to clear out about 15 minutes after the facility collapsed and the four staffers also were hospitalized.

The newspaper said team scout Chris Hall was one of the front-office members trapped underneath the frame, but was speaking clearly. The name of the fourth injured employee wasn't available.
