A woman who claims that she fell asleep in a tanning bed for about two and a half hours is suing the business, Loving's Hair Gallery East in Northeast Portland, where the incident took place.

In an Oct. 5 lawsuit in Multnomah County Circuit Court, Rebecca Fitzpatrick claims she dozed off during a tanning session in October 2009 and that Loving's employees failed to activate alarms, turn off the tanning bed and wake up Fitzgerald in a reasonable time.
