An ESPN anchor is suing an upstate New York hockey rink over a painful off-ice injury.

Linda Cohn says a heavy change-making machine fell on her arm at the Brewster Ice Arena in Putnam County and sliced her so badly she needed 25 stitches.

The 54-year-old Southbury, Connecticut, resident raised the allegations in a lawsuit recently served on the rink's owners. She's demanding unspecified damages plus costs and expenses.

Cohn's lawyer Jonathan Silver says the March accident happened in an arcade area of the rink as she was getting ready to practice for a promotional shoot with a New York Rangers minor league team.
