 PARENTS FILE $5,000,000 LAWSUIT OVER BURNED CHILD
 PANAMA CITY, Fla., Nov. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Gail Beltzer, the


mother of three year old Jennifer Beltzer, filed a $5,000,000 lawsuit in the Circuit Court of Bay County today against Sunshine Jr. Food Stores. The child, Jennifer, received second and third degree burns when a cigarette lighter purchased from Sunshine Food Stores exploded and set the child's clothes on fire. The accident happened in the Beltzer home in the early morning of Jan. 14, 1991. While the parents were sleeping, the three year old got out of bed and found a cigarette lighter that was designed to look like a dollar bill. The lighter exploded while the child was playing with it.
 Clark Fletcher, the attorney representing Gail Beltzer, said, "The lighter was designed to look like a toy that would attract children. Cigarette lighters are not supposed to explode."
