$9,000 – In a dark haunted house sponsored and conducted by a church group on the Boone County Fairgrounds in Belvidere, Illinois, patrons were required to climb five or six steps, cross a landing, and then jump down into a pile of hay.

Settled. In a dark haunted house sponsored and conducted by a church group on the Boone County Fairgrounds in Belvidere, Illinois, patrons were required to climb five or six steps, cross a landing, and then jump down into a pile of hay. When our 26-year-old client jumped into the hay, she heard a crack. The force of landing in the hay had caused her ankle to roll outward (laterally) and break. She sustained a supination external rotation type-II ankle fracture. Brotherhood Mutual Ins.
