    A woman flying from New York City to Seoul claims she was the victim of a mid-flight calamity last year that left her with severe burns to the groin.

    Yanling Yu was aboard Korean Air flight KE 85 from JFK to Incheon International Airport last October when a flight attendant “spilled a… cup of boiling hot coffee on [her] lap, causing her to sustain grievous personal injuries near her genital area, with attendant special damage,” according to a civil lawsuit obtained by The Daily Beast.

    The suit, which was filed Feb. 5 in New York State Supreme Court, accuses the airline and the flight attendant of “negligence, carelessness and recklessness” for the spill, and says Yu “has become sick, sore, lame and disabled… did expend large sums of money for medical care and attention and will be required to expend additional sums of money for medical care in the future to attend to her injuries which she believes to be of a permanent nature.”
