In 2009, Amy Jong slipped and fell while shopping at 99 Ranch Market in Dublin. She alleged she slipped on an unidentified liquid near an open-top refrigeration unit. As a result of the fall Jong underwent reconstructive surgery just one day later. However she later developed necrosis which led to her needing a full hip replacement.
