Blue thong’s are dangerous

A woman who says she was hurt by her thong panties when a metal clip flew off and hit her in the eye has sued Victoria’s Secret, saying in a TV interview that the injury caused her “excruciating pain.”

Macrida Patterson, a 52-year-old Los Angeles traffic officer, told NBC’s “Today” show that she suffered cuts to her cornea from the small piece of metal that had been used to secure a rhinestone heart onto the blue thong.

“I was putting on my underwear from Victoria’s Secret and  the metal popped in my eye. It happened really quickly. I was in excruciating pain. I screamed. That’s what happened,” Patterson said.

Patterson’s lawyer Jason Buccat said the metal staple caused “severe damage” to her cornea that required a topical steroid.

The product liability lawsuit, which was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court and first reported on the Smoking Gun Web site, seeks unspecified damages.

A spokeswoman for Victoria’s Secret, which is operated by Limited Brands Inc, could not immediately be reached for comment.
