Cowboys Stadium roof rescue:
Thursday, Dec. 03, 2009:
ARLINGTON, TX — Firefighters rescued two maintenance workers from the roof of Cowboys Stadium on Thursday morning after they slipped on the icy surface and slid until they were caught by a gutter.
The men, working for the roofing subcontractor Birdair, were not wearing safety gear when they stepped out of a hatch onto the roof just after 7 a.m., Assistant Fire Chief Don Crowson said.
The workers, whose names were not released, slid about 250 feet, the Cowboys said in a statement.
This photo was taken PRIOR to the incident. Five + "workers on the roof" are barely visible.

Wow. If that were me up there the FD could have just followed the trail of my brown skid mark for that whole 250 ft.
