Someone was inside the Metrodome and on the sideline as the roof of the Metrodome began to collapse, according to a video analysis.
A commenter pointed out to us that despite official word that nobody was on Mall of America field at the time of the roof failure, the Fox Sports video clearly shows a dark streak escaping on the far sideline as snow starts to stream down from holes in the roof.
