(SL) – How frightening. Two women have been treated and released after suffering injuries from chairs that were dropped from the 10th floor inside the Marriott Marquis.
21-year old Kelly McDaniel says she’s lucky to be alive and credits her costume helmet for saving her life. She was hit in the head and had to receive staples to hold the wound together.
Another woman, Jamie Temple-Thompson Amador was hit in the arm.
The Atlanta Police Department is currently investigating.
McDaniel has posted on her Facebook Sunday morning asking for anyone with information to come forwards. She said: ‘If anyone has any information about the inconsiderate jerks(s) that threw 3 chairs from the Marriott balcony and split my head open, please send it Cristóbal Esteban Poth (McDaniel’s boyfriend) or me.’
‘I was just discharged and we are headed home to recover from a horrifying experience. I have lost all faith in humanity, but I’m counting my blessings that I wasn’t hurt any worse. I could’ve died because of some drunk idiot.
