Woman who broke her neck diving into swingers club swimming pool while drunk sues NHS for more than £10 MILLION

A SWINGER who broke her neck diving into a swimming pool at a club night while drunk is suing the NHS for more than £10million in damages.

She claims paramedics caused more damage pulling her out — leaving her paralysed.

As a result she will not walk again, work or live independently, according to documents filed at the High Court.

The woman is suing North West Ambulance Services Trust and Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust for personal injury damages and consequential losses.

She suffered a permanent spinal cord injury and spent more than six months in hospital.

The woman had dived into the shallow end of a swimming pool at Infusion, a Blackpool swingers club and converted bus station, in August 2021.

Staff who saw her floating carefully removed her while her partner called 999, documents claim.

It is said medics used a track chair — a wheelchair to transport patients — to move her without supporting her head but dropped her so she fell to the floor.

In her claim she says medics failed to realise the possibility she had struck her head in the pool.

She also accuses hospital staff of failing to suspect she had injured her neck and failing to take measures to stop her spinal injury from worsening.

The ambulance trust said it “would be inappropriate to comment” on the case.
