Perhaps Exam-Worthy

A bit too late for the autumn, but perhaps you can use this story for a spring exam:

A man died after falling several stories in a Hollywood shopping mall while apparently attempting to slide down the banister of an escalator, authorities said.

The victim's friends told officials investigating the Saturday night incident at the Hollywood & Highland Center that the man "had been drinking quite a bit," said Los Angeles police Officer J. Boyer.

No litigation has been mentioned, but who knows?

(Thanks to Paul Steven Miller for the tip.)
