An investigation has been launched at Legoland after an acrobat suffered serious injuries during a stunt show that left another performer with a ‘broken neck’.
The gymnast was taking part in the Pirates of Skeleton Bay performance at the Berkshire theme park when he suffered ‘horrific’ injuries, yesterday afternoon. Shocked visitors could only look on in horror as the man crashed onto the ground after leaping off a Russian Swing.
Audience footage shows the man rocking on the swing but then seemingly hitting a metal pole as he leaps up into the air. He then crashes to the ground as his concerned colleagues rush over and cover up his stricken body with a flag.
A murmur can be heard from the audience as an announcement is made ending the performance.
Legoland Windsor confirmed that the performer had been taken to hospital and that the act would be suspended while an investigation was launched.
