Woman suffered an 8cm tear to her uterus whilst on water slide

A British mum-of-two was left with serious internal injuries to her uterus after using a wáter slide

A British mum-of-two was left with serious internal injuries to her uterus after using a water slide at the Aqualandia water park in Benidorm.

Her injures came as David Briffaut, 23, from Essex, was left with a broken neck at the same water park back in July after sliding head first down the Aquamania Splash ride. He could now be left with life changing injuries.

Monu Bhagat, 38, travelled to Spain for a family holiday with her husband Summit, 46, and two children, aged 11 and 13, but was left with an 8cm internal tear when the slide forced water inside her body. Despite being given safety instructions to close her legs, she was still seriously injured.

The family had flown out to Alicante on August 24, now the Surrey mum wants to warn other women about the dangers of using water slides.

“Women and girls need to know what they are getting themselves into. It could have easily have happened to my daughter.

“It could have been worse — if the cut had been bigger my uterus could have fallen out.”

“I’m older and have had children, but if it happens to someone younger it could completely ruin their life or chance to have children.

“They really need to know — why waste your life for a few seconds of fun.”

Monu spent 24 hours in hospital after having stitches. She reports she was told by medical staff at the park that she should get a taxi to a nearby hospital as her injuries were not considered serious enough to call an ambulance.

It will take Monu at least six weeks to recover.

Back in 2017, Toni Steedman suffered the same injuries on a water slide in Tenerife, losing six pints of blood in the near fatal accident.
