Oregon Woman Injured by Shattered Mirror Sues Yoga Studio

A Portland, Ore., woman is suing her yoga studio and a glass company after she suffered serious injuries when a mirror fell on her during class.

Lindsey Eltinge says she had her eyes closed when the mirror fell in January, and couldn’t understand why she was in such pain.

The Oregonian reports the mirror shattered across her body, sending a shard of glass through one of her ankles that severed a nerve and required emergency surgery. Her medical bills ran up to $40,000.

Eltinge is suing the studio, CorePower, and DT Glass, the company that apparently acquired the business that installed the mirror.

Eltinge’s lawyer says no one has been willing to accept responsibility for the incident.

She is seeking $455,000.
