Since that day, and to this date, crew members at CBS who bbabes present or know the details are reticent to divulge the name of the camera operator borrowed from the soaps across the hall for the fill-in.
Scars from two surgeries prevent her from ever again modeling or even wearing swimsuits or many styles of dresses. Janice lay unconscious in the pit for a full 45 minutes with CBS first aid personnel at her side, until she could be safely moved by paramedics.
CBS for injuries resulting from a accident in which she was knocked off the stage to the floor below, by a camera. With the regular camera operator out sick, the fill-in operator wasn't able to safely make the daily, very tricky camera move, with a simultaneous dolly and pan, with Janice at her mark, close to the camera.

Janice has permanent damage - one shoulder is an inch shorter than the other, and she has limited mobility. It was horrific.
Rod Roddy did his best second warm-up with the audience, and the show started again.
