Cowboy Training Camp - Blown Away!

Postby Tyeattolah » Sun May 03, 2009 9:09 am

Just saw this on CNN...high winds destroyed the Cowboys training "tent" yesterday. There were some injuries several which were serious but not life threatening including one coach with a possible broken back. :-o 8-o

On a lighter note, no one on the news said "It sounded like a freight train!" :-D

IRVING, Texas (AP)—The Dallas Cowboys’ special teams coach was set for surgery Monday on his fractured cervical vertebrae after the team’s tentlike practice facility collapsed in fierce wind.

Joe DeCamillis was one of 12 people injured and three Cowboys staff members still in the hospital following Saturday’s accident. The Cowboys didn’t immediately return a call regarding whether surgery on the 43-year-old assistant had begun early Monday.

The most seriously injured was Rich Behm, the team’s 33-year-old scouting assistant who was permanently paralyzed from the waist down after his spine was severed. Behm and assistant athletic trainer Greg Gaither, 35, remained hospitalized. Gaither had surgery on his fractured upper and lower right leg and was expected to be released this week.

This is horrible. I originally didn't think the injuries sustained were serious. Then I read this about the broken vertibrae. Now its serious. His spine was severad and he is paralized from the waist down.

My prayers are with him. :~(
