Family Billed For $132,000 After Kid Knocks Over Statue

Sarah Goodman, her husband and their four kids were attending a wedding reception at Kansas's Tomahawk Ridge Community Center. She had asked someone to mind her five-year-old son while she spoke to some friends but before long, heard a commotion in the next room. Her little boy had climbed on a glass sculpture and toppled it. Security footage captured the child hugging the piece of art and hanging on it before it falls to the ground.

Staff at the venue took down Goodman's information and later, the city of Overland Park, which owns the center, mailed her a bill for $132,000. Goodman explained to the Kansas City Star that she can't afford that and that the artwork wasn't secured and was actually a safety hazard to children at the event. In fact, she claims no one even asked her if her son was hurt in the incident. Instead, she just got a letter from Travelers Insurance about the cost of the artwork.

BOLDING (mine)... annnnnd there's the problem!  Not my fault.  Not my kid's fault.

Sarah hopes her insurance company will foot the bill, but she doesn't feel she or her son is to blame, saying, "Our kids were well-supervised and well-behaved."

Huh?

And just who was it that was supervising them so well? The ghost of Da Vinci?

Never the precious child's fault is it or the clueless parent. And she won't learn anything by this either.
