PHILADELPHIA (WBRE/WYOU) It was a terrifying moment captured on camera.

   He was inspecting lighting fixtures when he walked onto the glass floor.


  He spent three months in the hospital, racking up one point nine million dollars in medical bills.
  

The Philadelphia Museum of Art agreed to a $7 and a quarter million dollar settlement just as a civil trial was about to begin.
