Man injured when hit by quilt - or maybe the translation is "off?"

Is your hobby dangerous?

never would have guessed a quilt was a dangerous weapon!

Hmm, I wonder if my denim quilt would be heavy enough to use as a weapon? Maybe a sewing machine was attached to it?

I think that this could be a case of translation "error". Some words do not translate properly to English. I have traveled to China several times and was amused by the signs in English which needed a bit of 'fine tuning'. (Now, keep in mind, I'm NOT suggesting that I could do a better job translating English to Mandarin!) I wonder, though, exactly what did fall and injure the man... perhaps a bed?

This was hilarious! Did they use lead for batting? Maybe it was wet when it fell....
