DALLAS (AP) ‚ A report by a federal agency says the Dallas Cowboys' tentlike practice facility collapsed in winds it should have been able to withstand.
In a 121-page report released Tuesday, the National Institute of Standards and Technology said the steel and fabric building fell under wind loads "significantly less than those required under applicable design standards."
The 88,000-square-foot structure collapsed on May 2, leaving team scouting assistant Rich Behm (BEEM) paralyzed from the waist down and 11 others less severely injured.
Behm and Cowboys special teams coach Joe DeCamillas, who suffered a broken vertebrae, are suing the building's manufacturer, Summit Structures LLC, and others associated with the project.
