I broke my spine on the donut water ride 3 hours before my flight home from Majorca – mum had to drag me from the sea | The Sun

A TIKTOKER has told how she broke her spine after taking an inflatable beach ride three hours before she was due to fly home from Majorca.

Ellie Ross landed heavily after bouncing over a wave, leaving her in so much agony her mum had to drag her back to the beach.


Ellie explained she decided to try out the donut-style inflatable – which is towed behind a speedboat – at Palma Nova on the Spanish Balearic island.

"Waking up last day of holiday and deciding to go on this three hours before my flight," Ellie said in her TikTok video.

Her video shows Ellie posing in her bikini, then in a yellow life jacket on the beach before she scrambled on the inflatable craft toy with a pal.

Another pic shows her grimacing, apparently at the moment she suffered the spinal fracture.

Ellie added: "We went on them every holiday since I was about 11 but as soon as they took off on that one I knew something was off.

"I landed back down on it but I went flying in the air because they where circling really fast around a boat so I landed on an angle."

Afterwards, Ellie claimed she was forced to swim back to shore because the water sports operator refused to bring the inflatable back to the beach.

"Wish I was joking when I say this but they made me swim off it because they said if it goes on the sand it’ll deflate. My mum was just dragging me."

Ellie said she had to stay on the island for an extra week as she underwent medical treatment.

And she was expecting to be transported back to the UK on a private plane, before eventually boarding a commercial flight.

She said: "After they found out I could walk, they just gave me a whole row rather than a private plane. I was very disappointed to be fair."

Fortunately, Ellie said her insurance covered her medical bills, which amounted to £25,000, as well as new flights home for her and two holiday companions.

It is unclear if Ellie has taken any legal action against the water sports company.
