December 25 2007

A former janitor from New York, 56-year-old Shelton Stewart, who slipped on pigeon feces on one of the subway station, has received over six million dollars compensation, reports AFP.

The incident occurred nine years ago. Fall, an elderly man injured his neck, back and spine. Five years it took Stewart to re-learn to walk and perform everyday activities. He later sued the Transport Department in New York. The other day the court decided to pay 7.67 million dollars to Stewart compensation, but the management will pay only 80 percent of this amount, ie, 6130000. Reduced the amount of compensation, as Stewart was found guilty by 20 percent for what happened, because of the fact that he was unable to avoid the incident.

Stewart says that the money he was going to buy a house and brings two daughters and a grandson to Disneyland in Florida.
