Default Cowboys fan sueing the team for burning her arse

Quote:
A Dallas Cowboys fan is burning mad at her team.

Jennelle Carrillo, of Cleburne, Texas, has sued the Cowboys and owner/general manager Jerry Jones after she suffered severe burns to her backside while allegedly sitting on a bench outside Cowboys Stadium before a team scrimmage in August 2010.

Temperatures on the day of the annual Blue & Silver scrimmage were more than 100 degrees, and the bench that Carrillo sat on was black.

"The bench was uncovered and openly exposed to the extremely hot August sun," the suit, which was filed in Tarrant County civil court, states. "The combination of the nature of the black, marble bench and hot sunlight caused the bench to become extremely hot and unreasonably dangerous."

Carrillo's lawyer, Michael Wash, told KDFW-TV that his client initially knew she had been burned but didn't realize the extent of the injuries until receiving medical attention. She did not stay for the game, according to Wash.

"She sat down on this black bench, outside an entrance and unfortunately she suffered third-degree burns as a result of it and had subsequent skin grafts," he told KDFW.

The suit alleges that Cowboys Stadium posted no warning signs alerting fans that the benches could be hot.

Wash told KDFW that Carrillo has suffered "mental anguish, physical pain and disfigurement as a result of her wounds."

According to the TV station, Carrillo is suing to get a jury trial and payment of court fees, interest and a damage amount determined by the jury.

The Cowboys declined comment to KDFW due to the ongoing litigation, per team policy.

The rumor is to cover her lawsuit the Cowboys will turn around and sue the Giants for burning their arses twice last season.

Mr. Jones response: Well, the relative probability of burning one's arse on the black marble in August is in direct proportion to the actual size of one's arse....or glory-hole.

What a dumb lawsuit. Most reasonable people on a hot day check to see how hot the seat is. When I'm at the park with my kids and I see a metal slide on a hot day I check it. This comes down to "she dumb."

Hmm, black marble + direct sun = No warning signs so it must be ok. What a friggin dumbass. I think Jerry's an assbag, but he should counter sue just because how stupid this person is.

BTW, what the heck was she wearing? A thong? Put some friggin clothes on that fit!

Thats a pretty serious burn. In all fairness, if they have benches that are hot enough to burn you to the point you need skin grafts, they probably should put a covering over them or a warning of some sort.


In other news, hope she doesnt put the balm on

Back in the day, if you sat on a warm bench, you immediately get your arse up. Why do we now need signs, covers, lawsuits to protect or worse, compensate stupid decisions.

Marble due to its density does not tend to change its surface temperature very easily. However, prolonged unprotected concentrated exposure to 100+ degree direct sunlight (as was the case on the day in question), especially when the marble is black, can over the period of hours result in extremely hot temperatures. On the day of the incident, the surface temperature of the bench could have very easily reached 140 degrees. Having taken care of many devastating subtotal body to smaller areas of 3rd degree burns requiring skin grafts, I can throw out some rules of thumb to hang your hat on for this case. Keep in mind that there are exceptions to any rule.
First, I should mention that ~108 degrees is the human threshold to experience pain. With that in mind, 110 degrees will typically result in 3rd degree burns with 10 hours exposure; 120 degrees (the maximum setting recommended for a water heater) 5 min; 130 degrees 30 sec ; 140 degrees 5 sec; 150 degrees 2 sec; 156 degrees 1 sec.


The blood vessels just beneath the skin act like a radiator in a car. Its continued circulation cools the overlying skin. In the unique case of the buttocks in a sitting position, those “radiator coils” beneath the skin are compressed, thereby stopping the cooling effect to those areas of the skin, and making the timed tolerance to heat exposure very much less than normal/expected. Once a burn occurs, it is possible that continued sitting pressure (even on a cool surface) on the already damaged/burned skin, could extend the degree of burn due to the same failure of “radiator” cooling and potential nutritive /oxygen delivery cut off to the area required for preservation and/or healing.

That's funny Jean!!

A few years back, I think it was during a Raider game, the seats in the Bullpen were hot enough to blister your arse, arms, legs, anything that touched them. I signed up for a towel at one of the venders just to have something to put on the seat to keep from burning. Another hot game I just went up and sat in the Bullpen pub. Point I'm trying to make is that I had BRAINS enough to know the flippin seats were to hot to sit on! I sure as hell didn't blame the Texans, other than being ticked off that they kept the roof open on such a HOT day! The woman made a choice to sit on her arse and get it burned! How DUMB is that!!

Looks as if this has developed into a class action lawsuit. Other Lastarse Sowboy Fans have joined this young lady in her lawsuit.
It's been determined that it wasn't actually the bench, but Jerruh Jones ownership, and the play on the field that caused these burns to the Sowboy fans arses
