Vegas Hotel Has a Solar ‘Death Ray’

Forget sunscreen. At one Las Vegas pool, you might want to consider full-body armor to protect you from the sun’s powerful rays.

Guests at the new Vdara hotel have been complaining that because of an architectural flaw on the glass skyscraper, the sun’s rays are being magnified and reflected onto an area of the pool, causing severe burns. There have been reports that even plastic has melted from the heat.

Bill Pintas almost lost some hair from his experience with the hot spot.

After a recent swim in the pool just after noon, he went back to his lounge chair.

“I’m sitting there in the chair and all of the sudden my hair and the top of my head are burning,” Pintas told ABC News. “I’m rubbing my head and it felt like a chemical burn. I couldn’t imagine what it could be.”
