400 pound woman falls through sidewalk



http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/m...2tMkq9gvShHF0J

Size does matter!

The 400-pound Queens pedestrian who crashed through an Upper East Side sidewalk said yesterday that a thinner woman might have died from that fall.

“Thank God, they said that my size was the only thing that saved me,” Ulanda Williams, 32, told The Post as she was discharged from NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital.

Williams, of Springfield Gardens, was waiting for a bus at about 9:10 p.m. Friday when she tried to hide from the rain under an awning.

The ground suddenly disappeared beneath her — and she was swallowed whole by the cavernous space adjacent to the cellar of The Blue Room on Second Avenue.

“It was horrible, absolutely horrible,” said Williams, who broke her arm in two places in the 6-foot fall.

She said there were no warning signs indicating that any possible sidewalk danger.

“Nothing, nothing,” she said. “It happened so instantly that I didn’t even recognize anything. Cement was all over me, debris. They had a bed frame down there, broken pipes and wood pieces. It was a hollow place.”

“I was standing there approximately 10 seconds and when that occurred, I just fell right through,” said Williams, who stands about 6-foot-5.

The FDNY had to use a crane and cargo net to get her out.

A hard way to learn it’s time to go on a diet.

I'd love to post this photo with a poll to guess which poster this is? I would be on the options of course....

BTW, your meddling made it worse for everyone, a-hole, mind you own f'ing business.

That was a bit of a revenge for the 'Europe rocked by racism' thread
