Parents, keep a close eye on your kids when you’re out in public – if you don’t, it might end up costing you big time. Some parents in Overland Park, Kansas found this out the hard way. As they were preparing to leave a wedding reception at a community center, a couple’s 5-year-old son hugged a sculpture entitled Aphrodite di Kansas City. The sculpture then crashed to the ground and was destroyed.
The parents got an even bigger shock when the city’s insurance company asked them to pay $132,000 to cover the cost of the demolished sculpture. The letter to the parents read, “You’re responsible for the supervision of a minor child […] your failure to monitor could be considered negligent.” The parents claim the sculpture was not secured and that the community center is at fault.
Keep those kiddos on a leash, people!
Luckily (?), the whole incident was caught on video. Take a look:
