Woman sues over breast burns
PHILADELPHIA- A woman claims her breasts were burned by people dancing around a stripper pole who knocked over a hookah pipe with hot coals in a lounge.
Katelyn Sobon sued the Trilogy Nightclub and Hookah Lounge and its owner. She claims she and a friend were in a booth at the lounge when someone knocked over a table holding their hookah pipe which sent the hot coals to her chest.
She wants $50,000 in damages for pain and suffering and surgery to correct scars on her breasts.
The lounge owner says he's been advised by his lawyer not to comment but was quoted as saying Sobon was "trying to make a quick buck."
