When Mannequins Attack
Diana Newton of Westminster, Texas is suing the J.C. Penney Co. after an experience with a legless mannequin left her with a cracked molar, shoulder pain, and a bleeding scalp.
Newton said the incident happened nearly a year ago in the women's department, as she was shopping for a blouse. The only one in her size was on the mannequin. As a salesclerk was removing the garment, the dummy's arm flew off and struck Newton's head, according to her lawsuit.
Looks like somebody stepped into the Twilight Zone. The mannequin episode was always one of my favorites.
