Kid Knocks over Statue, Parents Sent $132,000 Bill

Kids + Art = Dangerous.

Last month in Kansas, a kid, being a kid, knocked over a pricey statue, it was all caught on camera, and now they parents are expected to foot the bill!

From Mashable:

According to Sarah Goodman, the child’s mother, the incident occurred last month at a wedding reception, local outlet KSHB reports.

A security cam captured the whole thing, and shows the kid hug the statue before walking away. The child later returns to the statue, and appears to hang onto it. The statue falls over, and the young boy goes along with it.

The statue was not barricaded in any way.

“We heard a bunch of commotion and I thought, ‘Whose yelling at my son?’” Goodman said. “This glass mosaic torso is laying on the ground and someone is following me around demanding my personal information.”

Eventually the family received a letter from an insurance company saying they were responsible for the statue because they neglected to monitor their children.

“My children are well supervised but all people get distracted,” Goodman told KSHB.

In her defense Goodman brings up a good point — why was this super expensive statue that could easily be toppled just sitting there without even a rope around it?
