Gonzalez, J.P., Sweeny, Renwick, Freedman, JJ.
Plaintiff alleges she was injured when suddenly struck by five falling rolls of bubble wrap as she pushed a shopping cart in defendant's store. Her prediscovery motion was based solely on her own self-serving observations, without any statement as to the presence of witnesses or what might have caused the rolls to fall, and was thus insufficiently supported (see e.g. Uddin v City of New York, 52 AD3d 422 ; McGlynn v Palace Co., 262 AD2d 116 ).
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.
