Vegas hotel 'death ray' problem burns guests


The curved design of the Vdara hotel apparently focuses too much sunlight onto the pool area. Guests have complained about serious burns, and say the strong rays even melt plastic cups and wrappers.

MGM Mirage, which owns Vdara, said the company is aware of the problem. It actually put a special film on the hotel's windows to reduce the sun's effects, but that obviously hasn't worked.
