NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) Its a case of a woman with burned buttocks, literally! A Dallas Cowboys fan is suing the organization and owner Jerry Jones over burns she says she received because of their negligence.
Jennelle Carrillo, of Cleburne, received severe burns to her backside after allegedly sitting on a bench outside Cowboys Stadium.
She sat down on this black bench, outside an entrance and unfortunately she suffered third-degree burns as a result of it and had subsequent skin grafts, explained Carrillos lawyer, Michael Wash.
The incident occurred in August of 2010, when Carrillo attended the Blue & Silver scrimmage football game. Temperatures on the day of the game were reportedly more than 100 degrees.
Wash said his client didnt stay for the game. She knew, while she was there at the stadium, that she had received some burns. But she didnt realize how serious they were until she received medical attention.
After seeking that medical attention Wash said Carrillo was hospitalized for about a week [and] had some very serious injuries.

Part of the lawsuit, filed in Tarrant County civil court, states specifically, The bench was uncovered and openly exposed to the extremely hot August sun. The combination of the nature of the black, marble bench and hot sunlight caused the bench to become extremely hot and unreasonable dangerous.
The suit goes on to state that the stadium didnt warn Carrillo or others about hot bench dangers and that there were no signs posted warning that the bench was hot.
Wash said his client suffered mental anguish, physical pain and disfigurement as a result of her wounds.
Carrillo isnt seeking a specific amount from those named in the lawsuit, but is suing to get a jury trial and payment of court fees, interest and a damage amount determined by said jury.
The Dallas Cowboys are staying mum on the issue, as their policy is not to comment about ongoing litigation.
How much better would our society be with more doctors and fewer lawyers?
I say she burned her own biscuits! Didn’t her momma teach her to check the temprature of the griddle before dropping chunks of lard on it?
“The bench was uncovered and openly exposed to the extremely hot August sun”
So..........this rocket scientist sat on it?
She was drunk. Dismissed.
A thread like this is meaningless without pictures....
....and let’s keep it that way!
What a dumb ass.
Wow, a black seat in the sun on a hundred degree day is dangerously hot... Who knew? What a dumb blonde, seriously. Hey, coffee is served hot, don’t hit your thumb with the hammer, knives are sharp... Any other common sense you’re lacking miss?
I hate these stupid lawsuits!
Really burns my ass!!
Yeah, I get the mental anguish part.
The girl in blue stripes spells it the same =
I want on that jury.
I’d sue them for fraudulently impersonating an NFL team for the past 15 years.
Probably right. Her friend is from Hometown: PLAINVIEW.
Whatever happened to using common sense now.
I always thought “that really burns my ass” was just a figure of speech...
What was she wearing? Sounds like she may have had shorts on, and any kid who has attempted to slide down a slide in the playground in summer knows better than to do it again.
Incidents like this one really burn my ass!
