Crying over spilt milk?
2 people in Australia are suing airlines after having hot coffee spilt over them during a flight and ending up with sever burns. A woman on a flight from Australia to Bali had hot coffee spilt over her chest, whereas a Canadian man was asleep and was awoken to severe pain in his arm where he woke to find his skin peeling off. Although both passengers were attended to, they are both still in pain and suffering from first and second degree burns.

Have a great week!
