A Fremont woman says she was hurt when a large video camera fell out of a press box and hit her while she watched a Lincoln Southeast High School football game two years ago.
Now Jennifer Boothe is suing Lincoln Public Schools and the Papillion-La Vista School District.
In a civil complaint filed in Lancaster County District Court, her attorney, Timothy Dowd, said it happened at a Sept. 3, 2010, game at Seacrest Field between Lincoln Southeast and Papillion-La Vista South.
Boothe was sitting as a spectator when the camera fell and struck her head, neck and left shoulder, causing both physical and mental injuries, he said.
In the lawsuit, Dowd said Boothe's medical bills have added up to $5,525 so far and that his client, who is a daycare provider, also lost wages because of it.
He alleges both school districts are liable for her injuries -- Papillion-La Vista because it was using the press box at the time and LPS because it owned it.
