It's a quintessentially American scene: The Phillie Phanatic rolling through Citizens Bank Stadium with a hot dog cannon strapped to a golf cart. He pulls the trigger and lets the free processed meat projectiles fly into the stands. One of them slams into a woman's face, sending her to the hospital.
Kathy McVay was the flying hot dog's unfortunate victim on Monday. She was watching the Phillies take on the St. Louis Cardinals from behind home plate when the airborne tube-steak careened into her face, reports ABC News.
"And then the next thing I know he shot it in our direction, and bam! It hit me like a ton of bricks. My glasses flew," McVay told reporters.
McVay wound up in the emergency room to be checked out for a potential concussion. Thankfully, she only suffered bruising on her face. McVay says she wasn't able to dodge the hotdog, which was wrapped in duct-tape, because of a shoulder injury that she's waiting to receive surgery for. Because of that injury, the hot dog left a pretty devastating mark.
