On February 20, 2015 a giant mirror approximately 10 ft high and estimated to weigh 250 pounds or more fell on diners having breakfast at a Manhattan cafe, Balthazar.
The mirror struck Arnaud Montebourg, 52, a former French politician on the head. He valiantly hoisted the mirror off unsuspecting diners until others rushed to help him. Montebourg was taken to the hospital and later released, sore but not hurt. It’s both fortunate and amazing that no one was seriously injured.
