Suit: Breasts burned at Philadelphia hookah lounge

The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA (AP) A woman says her breasts were burned by hot coals as people danced around a stripper pole at a Philadelphia hookah lounge.

Katelyn Sobon outlined her allegations in a lawsuit against Trilogy Nightclub and Hookah Lounge and its owner, Mohamed El Laisy.

Sobon says she and a friend were sitting in a booth in May when someone knocked into the rickety table holding their hookah pipe, sending the coals hurtling toward her cleavage.

She says she's suffering severe pain and humiliation and may need surgery to correct scars. She's seeking more than $50,000 in damages.

The lounge's owner said Wednesday that his lawyer advised him not to comment after the Philadelphia Daily News quoted him as saying Sobon was "trying to make a quick buck."
