Duo seeking legal action after getting injured breaking into water park leaves This Morning viewers baffled: ‘Are they looking for sympathy?’

The Morning viewers were left stunned as hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield spoke to two friends who are taking legal action against the owners of a water park that they broke into after getting injured.

Claire Vickers, 46, and her friend Barry Douglas, 44 were stuck on a water slide for two hours after they broke into the nearby attraction, before which they had been drinking.

They each appeared on the show in wheelchairs due to the injuries they had sustained in their ill-fated incident.

Claire shattered her ankle, and described how her bone had been popping out her leg.

Barry had even worse injuries, breaking both of his ankles and fibular, after skinny dipping in Aldershot Lido in Hampshire.

Claire described the ordeal ‘like something out of a Saw movie.’

They went on to explain how they would be taking legal action as they felt the security at the park was not secure enough.

Unsurprisingly, those watching at home were perplexed by the odd story, and were clearly not impressed by the daring duo, asking why the programme was ‘giving them airtime.’

 

 

 

 

 

 

One wrote on Twitter: ‘Are they looking for sympathy or???? #ThisMorning.’

Another echoed: ‘Can’t believe they’re getting airtime for this!’

A third commented: ‘I can’t believe they’re pursuing legal action …. They were p***ed and trespassing!’

Asking them about the incident, Holly said: ‘The nature of it, you can understand there are comical elements to this. However, what happened at the end of that slide is incredibly serious.

‘Instead of shooting out the other end, there is a barrier across the slide, what was that made of?’

Barry explained it was ‘a solid barrier made of steel.’

Holly continued to go through the events of the evening: ‘So, you hit the steel, you [Barry] hit it first if you’re in front, with your feet first.’

‘The bone came straight out my leg there and then,’ Claire revealed, explaining the gruesome scene of her shin bone was popping out.

Phil asked the pair to give a better picture of what had happened on that night.

‘The actual chute, when you come out, where the water’s supposed to slow you down, there was blocks.

‘As soon as I hit the bottom, I could see my leg straight in half… I was holding on to my leg,’ grandma Claire added to the host.

Looking at her other leg, she said: ‘I shattered every single bone in that foot, I had three surgeries on that leg.’
