ESPN's Linda Cohn sues NY rink over off-ice injury

AP - Sports

BREWSTER, N.Y. (AP) -- An ESPN anchor is suing a suburban New York hockey rink over a painful off-ice injury.

Linda Cohn says a heavy change-making machine fell on her arm at Hudson Valley's Brewster Ice Arena and sliced her so badly she needed 25 stitches.

The 54-year-old Southbury, Connecticut, resident raised the allegations in a lawsuit recently served on the rink's owners. She's demanding unspecified damages plus costs and expenses.

Cohn's lawyer Jonathan Silver says it happened in March in an arcade area of the rink as she was getting ready to practice for a promotion with a New York Rangers minor league team.

Cohn posted a picture on Twitter showing her stitched-up arm looking like a baseball.

Brewster Ice Arena hasn't returned a message seeking comment.
