Man ducked from flying shrimp; family sues Benihana saying it caused his death

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.

Note to self: Add Benihana to list of hazardous activities.

I can see suing the surgeon and hospital for a botched operation but to go back 10 months and claim a flying shrimp as a cause of death points to a legal system far out of control.

Think about just how many activities could cause one to twist your neck, amusement parks, airshows, sports events and yes even tennis matches.
Etc.etc.etc ad infintum................

Where does the insanity stop!
