Brit left 4 inches shorter from horror waterslide accident sues resort for £500k

A British woman who was left four inches shorter after smashing her spine in a waterslide accident is now suing the Spanish resort for £500,000 in compensation.

Jennifer Proctor, 27, was injured after being thrown from the 40mph Banzai ride in Majorca’s Aqualand waterpark back in 2019.

The then 25-year-old had to undergo an emergency spinal fusion which left her four inches shorter.

At the time, she told The Sun: “We had just arrived at the park…it was only the third ride we had been on that morning.

“Things started to go wrong pretty much as soon as I started going down the slide.

"Before I knew it I crashed straight into the pool below.

“I knew immediately something was seriously wrong. I was screaming at Jodie ‘I can’t swim’, which was very strange as I am a strong swimmer.

“I thought I would have the time of my life on holiday but instead it quickly became a nightmare.

“Having to undergo surgery abroad, away from family and friends, was extremely difficult and I feel that my life has been turned upside down by my injuries.”

Jennifer also suffered a recurring septic infection following her surgery which only caused further pain.

Prior to the incident, Jenifer was an aspiring teacher but she has been left unable to fund the rest of her training.

She is now taken legal action against Spanish leisure corporation Aspro Ocio S.A, as well as insurance firm Liberty Seguros, seeking £500,000 in compensation over alleged faults in the management of the ride.

Jennifer’s lawyer, Katherine Deal, told a High Court hearing: “One would not expect to use this water slide and come off it with a broken back.”

The case is currently ongoing.
