A tourist whose hair was singed by the sun's reflection off a Las Vegas hotel attributes the attention the story has received to the term "death ray."

William Pintas of Chicago, whose hair was singed while he was sunning by the pool of the Vdara Hotel on the Las Vegas strip in mid-September, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal he believes media outlets including ABC News, CBS News and BBC radio are mostly drawn to his story because of the term "death ray," which is the nickname pool employees gave the reflection.

Officials with MGM Resorts International, owner of CityCenter, a development including the Vdara, said they have received similar media inquiries from "Inside Edition," National Public Radio and NBC's "Today" show.

"I'm not taking away from (Pintas), but we have no other complaints that are similar to what he has told you," MGM spokesman Gordon Absher said. "The media's had great fun with this. And we've been good sports about it."
