    Family Says Restaurant's Flying Shrimp Killed Man


    POSTED: 5:34 am PST January 13, 2006

    MINEOLA, N.Y. -- The family of a suburban New York man claims he wrenched his neck, and later died because of it, after ducking to avoid a shrimp tossed by a hibachi chef.
    The family of 43-year-old Jerry Colaitis is seeking $10 million in damages. They said Colaitis died from complications caused by neck surgery that was required afterward.
    The incident occurred in January 2001. An attorney for the family said Colaitis went to a chiropractor and three neurosurgeons, and underwent surgery in June of 2001. The lawyer said there were complications and Colaitis had numbness in his arm. Months later, Colaitis had a 105-degree fever and died a day after checking into the hospital.
    Charles Connick, a lawyer for the Benihana restaurant, contended it was unlikely a chef who works for tips would toss food at customers after being asked not to the family claimed. Lawyers for the restaurant tell Newsday the cause of death was natural.
