I Thought I Have Heard Of It All

But this woman faked her own "slip and fall" accident at a supermarket in Sunrise, Florida.

Click here to read the article and see the video.

The best part is seeing the woman literally dive into the olive oil on the floor.

"When she's falling, she's not falling backward, she's falling forward," said Diaz, "usually when it's a slip and fall, you tend to fall backward."

Diaz decided to do a little investigating on his own and rewound the surveillance tape back even more, and what he found surprised him. On the tape, the same woman, in the same aisle, minutes before her 'slip and fall' accident. On the tape, the woman appears to be trying to open a bottle of olive oil unsuccessfully. The woman puts it back on the shelf, leaves the aisle only to return a few moments later and pick up a new bottle. The tape shows her opening this bottle and pouring some of the oil onto the floor, then she puts the bottle back on the shelf and leaves the aisle.

Minutes later, she returns to aisle and 'slips' on the oil.

Perhaps, she is going through a really hard time, and is desperate for a lawsuit where she could potentially milk some funds.
