Bellagio Lobby's Chilhuly Glass Sculpture Falls On Guests

We just got a text message from VT readers donnymac66 and spyder, who tell us that a 40x20 foot section (on the casino side) of the Dale Chihuly glass sculpture that hangs overhead in Bellagio's lobby crashed to the floor about an hour ago, sending guests - a number of whom are contestants in the Miss USA Contest - screaming through the casino in near pandemonium.

Guests who were near the glass shrapnel ran into the nearby casino and conservatory. One guest who saw the whole thing go down from a blackjack table said that there were maintenance crews on ladders cleaning the glass for about two hours before the accident.

He said it looks like only a handful of guests were bleeding but some got hurt in the escaping stampede. Check out our hastily assembled aftermath gallery. Pardon the quality, they're all cellphone pix.

April Fools!

Too bad...if you could "catch" just one of the Chihuly sea form glass works as it crashed to the ground and sneak it out during the chaos, you'd be $5-$10 thousand richer! :)
