Escape From New York

The fact that a plane crashed into a Manhattan skyscraper was spooky enough. Then things took a turn for the bizarre when it was revealed that one of the two people killed in crash was Yankee's pitcher and novice pilot Cory Lidle. But it gets even weirder.

The plane crashed into the Belaire luxury apartment building and its engine ended up in the mercifully unoccupied bedroom of one Kathleen Caronna. Caronna gained semi-fame in New York City back in 1997 when the Cat in the Hat balloon in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade knocked over a streetlight which hit her in the head and put her into a coma for 24 days.

Undoubtedly, the legal settlement from Macy's is what allowed her to live in such posh Upper East Side digs. But, legal windfalls aside, it appears that New York City is trying to tell her something. I urge Kathleen to get out of New York while the getting's good.
