SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A Sioux Falls man who claims he was permanently injured by an exercise ball that burst is suing the product's manufacturer for negligence.

The Argus Leader newspaper reports that 70-year-old Darold Borman is seeking unspecified money damages from Easton Bell Sports of Van Nuys, Calif. Company spokeswoman Erin Griffin says the company doesn't comment on pending litigation.

Borman claims in his lawsuit that the exercise ball he was using during a workout session in June 2011 burst and toppled him to the floor, leaving him temporarily unable to use his arms and legs and permanently handicapped. He says he had multiple surgeries, endured months of physical therapy and was forced to remodel his home because of his injuries.
