Woman Sues Miami Marlins, Claiming Injuries From Mascot

A woman is suing the Miami Marlins alleging one of its mascots seriously injured her neck during a game two years ago.

Beth Fedornak said Bob the Shark pretended to bite her head to rile up the crowd. But according to court documents filed earlier this month, she felt immediate pain in her neck after the shark bit down on her head.

The Miami Herald reports she claims the incident caused either permanent or continuing injuries in her neck and back, cost her more than $86,000 in medical expenses, and impaired her ability to work.

She declined to comment.
