This time it's Courtney Fletcher of Mt. Lebanon, PA. She was walking along and saw a rope that she thought might be fun to swing on. She subsequently hurt herself and is now demanding that the government go cut that rope down.
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Courtney Fletcher, 23, of Mt. Lebanon, believes a rope swing has to go.So now we all have to support a government that will remove rope swings from private property to prevent trespassers from injuring themselves?
Fletcher suffered an angular fracture when she fell 8 to 10 feet to the ground on a walking trail in the Walker’s Run section of Collier Township nine days ago.
She’s the second person who had to be rescued for falling on the same rope swing. Fletcher spoke to KDKA-TV from her bed at Allegheny General Hospital.
“When it happened, I could see bone. It didn’t come out of the skin, but the bone popped up and my foot was dangling in the other direction. My foot went into a small hole and cracked in half.”
Fletcher’s swollen ankle is blistered and is in pins. She’s in store for another round of surgery in the coming days.
Fletcher wants the rope cut down so what happened to her won’t happen to someone else.
Collier Police Chief Tom Devin says police want the rope down, but since the most recent accident they’ve learned it’s on private property and they are still trying to figure out who owns it.
Hell, with that thought process guiding her, I'm genuinely surprised that Courtney isn't occupying some city park somewhere demanding a massive nanny-state government like so many other members of the "lost cause" generation are.
Just watch her on the video and listen to the whining and the excuses. She basically blames everyone but herself and never once takes an ounce of responsibility for her actions. "Personal responsibility? What's that?"
Anyone wanna bet whether or not she has insurance and if not, any intention of paying those hospital bills herself?
Didn't think so. Me either.
