A football fan named Jennelle Carillo who is suing Dallas Cowboys is in the news spotlight these days after she allegedly “burnt her buttocks” in august 2010. 

According to CBS News, Jennelle Carrillo of Cleburne, Texas, allegedly received severe burns to her backside by sitting on a black marble bench outside the entrance of the Cowboys Stadium.

Jennelle Carrillo had been at the stadium in Arlington to attend the Blue & Silver scrimmage football game and temperatures that day was higher than 100 degrees.

“The bench was uncovered and openly exposed to the extremely hot August sun,” the suit, which was filed in Tarrant County civil court, states. “The combination of the nature of the black marble bench and hot sunlight caused the bench to become extraordinarily hot and extremely dangerous.”

The suit goes on to state that no warning signs were posted to alert fans and passers-by of the hot benches, ESPN notes.

Jennelle Carrillo’s lawyer told CBS News that she suffered third-degree burns on her derriere and had to get skin grafts. She was allegedly hospitalized for about a week as a result of her injuries.

Her lawyer also said that she had suffered mental anguish, physical pain and disfigurement as a result of her wounds.

Jennelle Carrillo is suing the franchise and its owner Jerry Jones is seeking to get a jury trial and payment of court fees, interest and a damage amount.
