Falling concrete at Dolphin Stadium prompts probes

Investigations of the structural integrity of Dolphin Stadium were ordered after a woman watching the Marlins' season finale was hit by a falling piece of concrete, local media reported.

The investigations were ordered by Miami-Dade County and the Dolphins.

Dolphin Stadium, the home of the National Football League's Miami Dolphins and Major League Baseball's Florida Marlins, will host the Bowl Championship Series' Orange Bowl on Jan. 2 and Super Bowl XLI on Feb. 4.

The woman was watching Sunday's Marlins-Phillies game when a "3- or 4-inch'' piece of concrete hit her on the head, George Torres, the director of corporate communications for Dolphin Enterprises, told The Miami Herald.

The woman was treated by paramedics, but continued to keep score of the game, Torres told the newspaper. A man sitting nearby also received some scrapes from a similar piece of falling concrete.

The Dolphins' next home game is Oct. 22 against the Packers.
