NYC lawyers have warned Al Sharpton’s daughter not to delete any of the mountain climbing photos she posted on social media as she sues the city for $5 million over a sprained ankle.

Dominique Sharpton, 29, claims she ‘still suffers and will continue to suffer for some time physical pain and bodily injuries’ after tripping over uneven pavement in Soho in Manhattan last October.

Before filing the lawsuit on May 7, Sharpton shared pictures of herself hiking in the rugged Red Rock Canyon outside Las Vegas with despite the ‘permanent’ ­injuries she suffered before the suit.

In response to the Manhattan Supreme Court suit, city Law Department lawyer Michele Fox sent Ms Sharpton a letter on May 20 warning her to preserve all the photos, the New York Post reported.

Fox wrote: ‘The purpose of this letter is to demand that plaintiff preserve any photographs, documents, communications and any other information, both tangible and electronically stored, potentially relevant to her alleged trip and fall.

‘This demand should be construed broadly to encompass materials related to plaintiff’s health, mobility, activity or physical limitations after the alleged incident.’

Her lawsuit is now worth $5,00 to $7,500 because Ms Sharpton’s demonstrated in her Instagram pictures that the injury is no longer impairing her quality of life, legal experts told the newspaper.
