BUFORD, Ga. (AP) — A jury has awarded $1.2 million to a Georgia woman who said she was scalded by 190-degree water that shot out of a convenience store's cappuccino machine.

Attorney Nelson Tyrone III told the Gwinnett Daily Post that the woman, 52-year-old Cynthia Nance, was burned on Halloween night in 2007 at a QuikTrip convenience store.

The company said in an e-mail to The Associated Press on Thursday that Nance's injury resulted from a rare accident. QuikTrip says it has since replaced the cappuccino machines at all its stores.

Tyrone said Nance was burned on her hand and arm as she held her cup near the machine. He said she could require an electronic implant to correct nerve damage caused by the burns.

Both sides said the money was to be used for Nance's future medical expenses.
