Painful Rejection at Dance

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) A 69-year-old Kansas man ends up with a broken rib and collapsed lung after unsuccessfully trying to get a young woman to dance with him.

The Wichita Eagle reports the man attempted to dance with the woman at 1:10 a.m. Sunday at the Driftwood Lounge when she took exception and pushed him.

Police spokesman Sgt. John Hoofer says the man was injured when he fell back onto a wooden bench.

He was transported to a local hospital. Police are still looking for the woman, who is in her 20s.
