Woman sues operators of glass ‘Skyslide’ over broken bone

A woman suffered a broken ankle on the ‘Skyslide, a glass-tube slide attached to the outside of a Los Angeles skyscraper, according to her lawsuit against the building owner.

Gayle and Morty Yasher, of Woodmere, New York, seek unspecified damages in their lawsuit which was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court Wednesday, according to mynewsla.com.

The Skyslide is attached to the 72-story U.S. Bank Tower. It is affixed 1,000 feet above the ground. The 360-degree glass slide spans 45 feet from the 70th to the 69th floor.

Riders are given a small mat to ensure a smooth trip down the slide. Some riders have had a bit of trouble sticking the landing, which is cushioned by an inflatable mat.

The landing is the crux of the Yasher lawsuit.

The slide design does not allow riders enough ability to slow down before reaching the end, according to their complaint.

Gloria was injured July 3, just eight days after the slide opened, according to mynewsla.com.

A spokesperson for the company told The Associated Press that a legal team will review the lawsuit.
