‘I felt a very strong pinch on my lower back,’ Lopez Bianchi said to the New YorkPost.

‘There were four pieces [of glass] that got into my lower back. … I was bleeding.’

Unable to pull all the shards out of her back, the model felt that the $235-per-month should have known better. 

The lawsuit – handed to the Manhattan Supreme Court – states that Lopez Bianchi  is ‘an international model who must maintain a pristine appearance for her work.’

The model added that she works out at Equinox ‘virtually every day.’

It was alarming to Lopez Bianchi, even moreso, because she told the gym that their was shattered glass on the floor close to a bathroom near the exercise areas, five days ago.

She sent an email after stating her complaint but only received a thanks from management. 

She is suing for $100,000.
