Woman Who Fell Through Sidewalk Says Being Overweight Saved Her Life

Via Theo Spark:

A 400-pound woman has been hospitalized with a broken arm after falling through a New York sidewalk on Friday night.

The incident happened when the 31-year-old woman attempted to shelter from the rain outside a restaurant on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.

According to witnesses, the sidewalk gave way underneath her and she fell about seven foot into the basement of the Atomic Wings restaurant at the Blue Room Grill on the corner of East 60th Street and 2nd Avenue.

  1. According to reports the woman had just stepped backwards to take shelter the rain under an awning when the four foot by six foot slab of concrete gave way. Inspectors with the Department of Buildings determined that defective steel doors and a loose staircase were responsible for the sidewalk collapse. There is some stir about her weight. Assumptions of her weight causing the collapse are possibly poorly misguided.
