A five-year-old in Kansas playing at a community center knocked over a one-of-a-kind statue.
The unprotected work of art turned out to be valued at a whopping $132,000.
The child’s parents say that they cannot pay for damages, but the city could take legal action.

In a surveillance video from Overland Park, Kansas, you can see a five-year-old child trying to “hug” a work of art during a wedding reception at Tomahawk Ridge Community Center. The statue quickly topples over, and luckily the child scrambles away without serious injury.

While no one was physically harmed, it turned out that the art, titled “Aphrodite di Kansas City” by the artist Bill Lyons, carried an incredible $132,000 price tag, and the child’s parents don’t want to be held financially responsible. See the rest of the story at Business Insider
