Anderson Cooper

Sued Over Firehouse Spill

2/13/2010 7:01 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Anderson CooperAnderson Cooper often puts himself in harm's way to get a story -- but a NYC woman claims she was the one put at risk and it was all his fault.

Cooper is being sued by a woman who claims she fell through a hole at a firehouse in Greenwich Village that he's converting into a new home.

According to the NY Post, the incident happened last September when the woman fell 17 feet through a hole that once contained fire pole -- the pole had been removed, but the hole remained.

The firehouse was built in 1906 and was used as such until 2006.

I would think this woman KNEW this was a firehouse and that, being one, a hole would be in the floor for the pole. If she forgot about that then who's to blame? I think she just want to sue someone because of her own stupidity. After all, this is America, and in America it's never our fault. It's always someone else's.

Anderson Cooper is handsome. I wonder what his significant other looks like.
After all, didn't he just come out of the closet?

Wouldn't the pole be half the fun of living in a renovated firehouse?

I don't get it.

Isn't his partner Ben the stay-at-home "husband" overlooking things for his Andy? Ben's gotta be the luckiest person on the planet, and he's ugly!

"Whole?" Come on! Too busy making fun of everyone else I guess to hire people who can actually write in English.

Why would Anderson not cover his hole?

I mean, anyone knows that you don't expose your hole and then leave it there - gapingly open - for anyone to come upon.

Doesn't he know anything about safe(-r) remodeling?

What was she doing in HIS house?

If she was on the remodeling crew, various insurances would cover her.

If she wasn't on the crew, she has some 'splainin' to do.

And why is it HIS fault? If the crew was working on the "whole" at the time, of course it wouldn't be covered.

And how klutzy is she to fall down a 17' "whole"?

And who would remove the best part of a 100 year old firestation in the first place???

If he had the dwelling open where someone could just walk on in and the hole wasn't blocked off, he could be in trouble.
