Insurance Company Pays $107K After Kansas Boy Topples Sculpture


A city in Kansas has received $107,000 from a family’s insurance company after a 5-year-old boy accidentally knocked over a sculpture at a community center.

Overland Park spokesman Sean Reilly says the city plans to send $99,000 to artist Bill Lyons, who created “Aphrodite di Kansas City.” Reilly says that’s the amount Lyons would’ve received had the sculpture sold at the center’s art fair.
The statue was damaged at the Tomahawk Ridge Community Center in May. The surveillance video shows that the child is struggling to wrap his arms around and then hold it down.

Kansas City Star said that the child’s mother Sarah Goodman told Saturday that she did not tell her that the money was paid by the insurer.

She said that the statue is unprotected and that an insurance company’s family wants to pay $ 132,000.
