6abc.com – PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa. (WPVI) –Kathy McVay of Plymouth Meeting learned the hard way that a hot dog can hurt.
“It just came out of nowhere. And hard,” she said.
On Monday night, McVay was at the Phillies-Cardinals game at Citizens Bank Park. She was seated behind home plate when the Phanatic rolled out onto the field with his hot dog launcher.
The big green mascot started firing away into the stands. The Phanatic shoots real hot dogs, but they are wrapped in duct tape.
One headed straight for Kathy McVay’s head.
“And then the next thing I know he shot it in our direction, and bam! It hit me like a ton of bricks. My glasses flew,” McVay said.
She told Action News she couldn’t catch it or swat it away because she has a shoulder injury that will require surgery this week.
On Monday night, she ended up in the emergency room for a CAT scan to make sure she didn’t suffer a concussion. She is black and blue and very sore. Her facial injury requires ice every 20 minutes.
She explained, “I have a small hematoma in my eye. And mostly, it’s going to get worse before it gets better. It’s going to go down the side of my face.”
What a headline, I see what you did there 6 ABC.
