A grandmother, Claire Vickers, 46, and her friend Barry Douglas, 44, sneaked into a swimming pool at 2 a.m. Intending to hurtle down the toboggan, their run ended up with fractures instead. Indeed, the 2 friends were stuck in the slide for almost 2 hours before the police found them. The latter was alerted to the fact that children were doing stupid things. Results: both had a broken shin and shattered feet!

This evening will have been well watered for Claire from the start. Indeed, before joining Barry at his place to drink, she had already been drunk in a pub for nearly 4 hours. The alcohol working, she would have suggested that he go for a little dip in the neighboring lido at 2 am. They then slipped under a barrier to reach the slide. Claire sat down first and Barry put his legs around her. They then slipped together! Since there was no water, Claire had run some in the chute of the footbath.

“I thought we were both going to die”

In their run down the slide, they accidentally discovered a barrier blocking the exit. Due to the shock, Claire’s right shin pierced her skin. All of the bones in her left foot were also broken. “I couldn’t think correctly as the pain was excruciating. It was like a scene from a horror movie,” the former bartender said before adding, “I looked at Barry. He was in a fetal position and silent. That’s when I thought we were both going to die. “

As for Barry, the forklift driver, he broke his left leg as well as his 2 ankles. “The pain was unbearable,” he said. Fortunately for them, no action was taken by the police.
