Most people fear swallowing bones when KFC, some people fear swallowing Wendy’s food at all, but now it looks like people have to fear swallowing wires from their chicken.
Lajzer Grynsztajn, 50, said he nearly choked to death on a 2-inch coil he claims was cooked in a two-piece order he bought at JFK Fried Chicken near his Sunset Park bus depot. “The more I think about it, I get angry. I almost died for something stupid like that?” said Grynsztajn, of Bensonhurst. In a Brooklyn Supreme Court lawsuit, the 11-year Metropolitan Transportation Authority veteran is seeking unspecified damages for the near-fatal food fiasco. Grynsztajn charges that the clerk who took his order seemed more concerned about him paying for the meal than why he was choking at the counter.
“He asked for $5 before I passed out or something,” said Grynsztajn.
