The grandmother is suffering from an eye injury because she was hit by a pair of trousers in the face while on holiday during what was supposed to be in injury-free holiday in the United Kingdom.


A South African Sunday newspaper reported that Merle Groenewald was left with a ‘permanent eye injury’.


She is suing the strip club for a whopping R2.7 million.

Groenewald works at a popular Cape Town hotel. 


According to Attorney Mark Mulrooney, he said, ‘One of the performers flicked his trousers toward the audience, but part of the trousers caught Mrs. Groenewald in the eyes and caused her to suffer injury. She suffered a severe blunt injury to her left eye which caused her to require surgery. She has lost useful vision in her left eye and suffered a temporary injury to her right eye.’
