Woman Claims She Suffered Third Degree Burns to Her Ass at Cowboys Stadium, Sues Jerry Jones

Thumbnail image for New Cowboys StadiumB.jpg
At Cowboys Stadium, danger lurks in broad daylight.
Outside Cowboys Stadium, near entrance E, is a black, marble bench. As things that are black and marble tend to do, the bench gets hot when exposed to the summer sun. Jennelle Carrillo says she discovered this the hard way when, on August 10, 2010, she sat down to wait for the start of the Blue & Silver Scrimmage.

The bench proceeded to sear the flesh of Carrillo's ass, like a pork chop in a red-hot skillet. The burns were bad enough that she had to go to the hospital and, later, spent a week in Parkland for skin grafts. To answer your question: yes. She was fully clothed.

Carrillo then did what any right-thinking Cowboys fan would: She blamed Jerry Jones.

In a lawsuit filed last week against Jones, the Dallas Cowboys, and a handful of related entities, she claimed they created a dangerous environment that led to her injury and mental anguish. (The suit was first reported yesterday by the Star-Telegram)

"No signs were posted at or near the bench warning that it was too hot for persons to sit on nor was the bench roped off to prevent persons from sitting on it," the suit says.

The suit does not specify damages but seeks payment for "physical pain and mental anguish, reasonable and necessary medical expenses, loss of earning capacity, physical impairment, (and) disfigurement."

One piece of legislation I would be 100% in favor of is holding these fucking idiot lawyers accountable both criminally and monetarily when filing these frivilous, ridiculous fucking lawsuits.  Enough already with these ambulance chasing douchebags.

Using google streetview, I notice there are public benches in front of the law office building.  I notice there are no warning signs.  I wonder how hot it gets in downtown Austin in the summer time?

Leandra Guzman using Facebook in the comments...."The burns were bad enough that she had to go to the hospital and, later, spent a week in Parkland for skin grafts".  I don't think your reading comprehension is very good.

Paragraph 2 mentions hospital , the grafting and she was fully clothed not that the comments weren't entertaining.

ridiculous.  Wish there was a report of how long she sat there.  If she sat and jumped up and received 3rd degree burns, that'd be one thing.  But, as a kid who often enough walked barefoot on asphalt, I ain't buying it.

I love the fat jokes.........how dumb and fat do you have to be?  How lame!? Who goes to Cowboy scrimmages? That's it, I'm suing Rowdy for mental anguish......ever see that stupid thing ride that eff'ing four wheeler on two wheels?  Isn't it time Jerra let Jerra Jr. have a management position?  I'd be pissed if my dad was a billionaire, and made me wear the lamest mascot outfit on earth!

There was a playground in downtown Dallas a couple of years ago that was placed in the sun during certain seasons and the metal for the kids to play on made the kids sizzle like bacon. I assume that an alternative playground/relationship-to-the-sun was enacted to lessen or eliminate the screaming.

Picture please.

How fat do you have to be to sit on a hot surface and not notice the sizzling under your own fat ass?

Full sun, hot day, black surface ... doesn't realize that it will be very hot ... must be a product of our educational system and standardized testing ... must not be a question on the standardized test about black surfaces exposed to sunlight on summer days.

 

But then again, who was the idiot that thought this one up ... I guess that they deserve each other ...

 

I wonder if her stove, hot water faucets, oven, coffee pot, toaster and similar appliances are roped off.

 @kergo1spaceship I might light a firecracker under Big Kitty's big behind to get her to shake some of that fat off, but I'd be arrested for cruelty to animals.

 @Montemalone it takes quite a while for the lard in the ass to heat up sufficiently to fry the meat

 @Myrna.Minkoff-Katz  

 And you're the prime example of a left-wing libtard love child who would love nothing more than to be told what to do and when to do it no matter the cost.  And you further prove your idiotic position by rattling your entitlement saber in the face of a frivilous lawsuit because some fat bitch didn't know when to get up because her sausage ass was burning.  Better yet let's now put her on SSI disabilty and take care of her blackened backside in perpetuity.  Myrna Kats....campaigning for the United Welfare States of America.

 @ChrisYu I walked over after the first quarter when Troy, Michael and Emmitt had all left the game and yelled up at Jerry's box that we deserved a refund.  He saw me, smiled and patted his pockets.
