    A lawsuit says that a bachelor party mishap at a Philadelphia strip club landed the groom-to-be in a hospital with a ruptured bladder.

    According to the lawsuit, Patrick Gallagher of Lansdale, had been invited to lie on the stage at the Penthouse Club in Port Richmond, as a dancer slid down a pole.

    The woman landed with such force on Gallagher's abdomen that his bladder ruptured, according to the lawsuit.

    Gallagher needed surgery after sustaining the injury in November 2010.

    The lawsuit accuses the club of negligence and seeks at least $50,000 for medical costs, pain, humiliation and mental anguish.

    The club's owner has not commented.
