A 65-year-old kindergarten teacher is suing Madison Square Garden, claiming she broke her ribs when a security guard pushed her down during a melee at a New York Rangers playoff game.
Eileen Adler’s suit says she attended Game 5 against the New Jersey Devils on May 23, 2012 when a fight broke out in the stands. Adler, a 25-year season ticket-holder, alleges that a guard rushing to the scene pushed her over a row of seats, breaking two of her ribs, and never returned to assist her. She says she was unable to return to her job for the rest of the school year.
"We were standing watching the very tail end of the game and all of the sudden I felt this push and I went flying over the seats," Adler told The New York Post.
