According to the Durango Herald, the lawsuit says Shaohong Deng was watching her child on the climbing wall at the Durango Rec. center back in 2013 when a piece of art, that looked like a kite, fell from the ceiling and hit Deng in the head.

She suffered injuries to her shoulder, neck and ankle.

Under the settlement, Deng will receive nearly $7,000.
