PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A Philadelphia woman has filed a lawsuit after she says her thumb was cut off while she participated in a competition at a strip club.

The Philadelphia Daily News reports ( http://bit.ly/YmWnA4) 35-year-old Sarah Berry says she was rehearsing for the competition at Delilah's when an apparatus she was using severed her thumb in July 2011.

She filed the suit in city court on Friday and is seeking more than $50,000. Her suit says Delilah's failed to ensure the crescent-shaped metal bar suspended from the ceiling was properly designed, built, inspected and tested.

Her attorney, James D. Golkow, says his client wasn't a professional dancer and had entered the contest at a friend's invitation. He says her injury required surgery.

Managers at Delilah's didn't respond to a request for comment.
