ESPN broadcaster Linda Cohn is filing a lawsuit against a New York ice rink after a group of kids pushed a heavy coin machine which allegedly fell on her, resulting in a huge gash that required 25 stitches.

Linda Cohn is filing a lawsuit against a New York ice rink. 

Cohn, a popular ESPN broadcaster, alleges a group of children pushed a heavy coin machine at Brewster Ice Arena. The machine fell on her and opened up a gash which required 25 stitches, per an Aug. 21 update from The New York Post's Rich Calder:

"A popular ESPN sportscaster wants an upstate ice arena put in the penalty box because a bunch of rowdy kids pushed a heavy coin machine on top of her before an even there -- leaving her with a gash that took 25 stitches to close. 

"Sports anchor Linda Cohn, 54, filed a negligence lawsuit in Manhattan federal court against the operators of Brewster Ice Arena in response to the injury she suffered to her right arm. 

"Cohn says in her suit that 'a heavy, large coin-change machine fell upon her' March 27 while she was about to take the ice for a promotional event with players from the Rangers' minor-league affiliate, the Hartford Wolf Pack. 

"Cohn, of Southbury, Conn., claims in her suit to still be suffering great pain and being limited in daily activities because of the incident, and blames the Brewster arena's management for not preventing it. She is on active duty for ESPN. 

"The suit, quietly filed in July, doesn't mention that she works for the network, nor does it provide much detail about what happened.

"But Cohn did offer a photo on her Twitter and WhoSay accounts on her arm after it was stitched up. She said an incident prevented her from doing the Wolf Pack appearance, in which she planned to play goalie. 

"Cohn, who has worked at ESPN since 1992, played goalie in college while attending SUNY-Oswego, and played for the boys' team at her high school. 

"'This is what kept me from taking ice w/ @WolfpackAHL today. Some kids playing in arcade knocked over metal machine onto my arm 25 stitches,' she tweeted.

"The suit also names Steve Santini and Southeast Sports Complex LLC, which owns the three-rink arena. Messasges left for Santini were not returned. 

"ESPN said Cohn was off duty at the time of the incident, and referred inquires to her publicist, who did not return messages." 

Prior to the accident, Cohn was eager to suit up for the promotional event, per the Wolf Pack's official website:

"'Can't wait to get back in net, kick out some pucks and show off my lightning fast glove hand,' said Cohn. 'At least that's how it's going to go in my mind. My body might have another plan.'

"Cohn, a mainstay on SportsCenter since July of 1992, has been a high-level puckstopper since her high-school days on Long Island. Prior to her entry into the world of broadcasting, Cohn played goal at SUNY-Oswego, with such success that she earned a 2006 induction into the school's athletics hall of fame. Before that, Cohn played for the boys' hockey team at her high school, Newfield High in Selden, N.Y. 

"Throughout her professional career, Cohn has been closely identified with the game of hockey, handling hosting roles on ESPN's 'National Hockey Night' and 'NHL 2Night' on ESPN2. She is also a lifelong New York Rangers fan." 

This is not Cohn's first brush with danger. 

On July 16, Cohn's colleague at ESPN, Michelle Beadle, revealed to TMZ how she saved Cohn from a snake bite three years ago by sucking the poison out of her leg after she was bitten by a snake during a trail hike in Arizona:

"If you ever get bit by a rattlesnake -- and Michelle Beadle is your only hope to suck out the poison -- congratulations...you're gonna die. 

"Despite the fact that she slurped the 'poison' out of Linda Cohn's leg back in 2011 when the SportsCenter anchor was bit during a trail hike in AZ...Beadle says she's not really sure the snake in question was even poisonous. 

 

"In fact, Beadle says if she had seen a rattle on the end of the serpent that chomped on Cohn...Linda would probably be dead.

"'Honestly, I don't think I would have sucked poison if it was a rattlesnake. She's on her own...I gotta live. I got stuff to do.'

"Gotta respect the honesty."
