WILKES-BARRE, Pa. – School and foundation officials should have told King’s College student Jennifer Ercolani that playing tag in a muddy marsh could possibly be dangerous.
Because they allegedly did not, Ercolani is suing King’s College and the Chesapeake Bay Foundation after she “unexpectedly stepped into an area of extremely thick mud” while playing tag with classmates participating in an October environmental studies course, “causing her right leg to hold fast as she turned her body,” according to her lawsuit cited by the Times Ledger.
Ercolani fractured her hip during the game, which followed a “mud run” at the Foundation owned Bishop’s Head, Maryland refuge. In a lawsuit filed against the Foundation and college on Monday, Ercolani claims the experience also resulted in “shock to her nervous system,” and is looking for at least $50,000 from both defendants, according to PennLive.
