Woman Alleges Permanent Neck Injury Due To Marlins' Shark Attack

A lawsuit filed last month in Miami-Dade County court alleges a woman suffered serious and permanent injuries after being attacked by a fake shark during a 2013 Miami Marlins game. The Marlins, like most shitty (and a few good) teams, hold a mascot race between innings in a futile attempt to distract fans from the putrid baseball being played upon their diamond. Beth Fedornak claims one of these mascots, a shark, bit her on the head and caused permanent, serious damage to her neck, back and extremities.

Fedonrak states these injuries have impaired her ability to work and that she is seeking damages based on the Marlins’ alleged negligence. Read the suit below.
