Lawsuit File Against The New Skyslide

LOS ANGELES ( — A lawsuit claims a woman suffered a broken ankle on a recently opened glass-enclosed slide attached to the exterior of a downtown Los Angeles skyscraper.

The lawsuit filed Wednesday against building owner OUE Skyspace LLC and a concession company claims negligence.

Fifty-seven-year-old Gayle Yashar and husband Morty Yashar of Woodmere, New York, seek unspecified damages.

The Skyslide opened last month as part of a renovation of the 72-story U.S. Bank Tower. The slide spans 45 feet from the 70th floor to the 69th.

The suit claims the design doesn’t allow rider to slow down enough before reaching the end and a stack of mats in the runout area created a gap that trapped riders’ feet.
