Not long time ago a woman named Antoinette Allison from Reynoldsburg, Ohio booked a room and stayed at the Crowne Plaza Hotel located in Syracuse, New York. There is nothing unusual about Mrs. Alilison’s seemingly mundane stay at the hotel but her unusually awkward and unfortunate accident she had at the lobby bar.
While she was at the bar and sitting at “very high” bar stool Mrs. Allison fell from it. The bar stool then fell on top of her arm and injured her. She suffered from a couple of broken bones in her arm which required surgery and quite the embarrassment as well. There is no information whether she was intoxicated or not. After the misfortunate incident Mrs. Allison immediately filed a lawsuit against the hotel seeking $1 million compensation for her injuries.
It turns out that the bar stools at the lobby bar of the hotel were quite high because they had to be in accordance with the height of the bar.
