A sizzling piece of shrimp tossed at a man during dinner at a Long Island Japanese restaurant in 2001 led to his death, his family has claimed in a lawsuit against the Benihana chain.
Jerry Colaitis injured his neck while ducking from the shrimp, which a chef flipped his way during a family dinner to celebrate a son's birthday at the Munsey Park restaurant in January 2001, said Roslyn attorney Andre Ferenzo, who is representing Colaitis' estate.
About 10 months later, Colaitis, 47, of Old Brookville died because of complications from the surgery he needed to correct the pain in his neck, Ferenzo said.
