New Jersey man charged with insurance fraud over ‘fake fall’

A New Jersey man has some explaining to do.

He said he injured himself when he slipped on some ice at work, but the video tells a different story.

The video from last year shows 57-year-old Alexander Goldinsky throwing ice on the floor of a break room at a business in Woodbridge Township, New Jersey. 

Moments later, Goldinsky stands on the ice before essentially just laying down on the floor. 

Prosecutors say he remained on the floor before being discovered.

He eventually filed an insurance claim to cover hospital and ambulance bills, saying he was injured when he slipped and fell on ice at work. 

Goldinsky was arrested on January 15 and faces insurance fraud charges. 

He’s also facing a charge of theft by deception.
