Women Injured by Thrown Chairs at Dragon Con
Dragon Con was held in Atlanta in the beginning of September. Two women sustained head injuries as a result of chairs being thrown from a hotel balcony. The chairs were thrown off of the 10th floor of the Marriott Marquis just after 1:30 a.m.
According to reports, the women were on the street below when someone threw chairs from the terrace area of the 10th floor. One woman said that she heard pops and then felt something warm running down her face. The victim was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital to be treated for a head injury. The woman was ultimately treated and released.
A second woman who was hit with one of the chairs was taken to WellStar Atlanta Medical Hospital. That woman was also treated for injuries and released. While the women say they still have love for the convention, a witness to the aftermath of the incident doesn’t feel the same.
Some say that the even was unorganized. It appeared as though no one knew exactly what they were doing. A spokesman for Dragon Con said that organizers were grateful that the injuries were not more severe. It is unknown who threw the chairs from the terrace, and police are seeking information regarding the incident.
