Teenager spinal injury at Bounce Below
Posted: 06/08/2014 17:31:34
Health and Safety Executive investigate after 15-year-old air cadet is taken to hospital at the attraction at Llechwedd Slate Caverns in Blaenau Ffestiniog.

It is understood that he had a spinal injury and was stable.

But Sean Taylor, who runs the Bounce Below attraction, claimed the boy had a pre-existing issue.

He said: “He was an air cadet and he had an undisclosed medical condition we were not told about. He was put on a board and taken to hospital as a precaution. He was kept in overnight.”

An HSE spokesman said: “The HSE Mining Inspectorate has been informed of an incident at Llechwedd Caverns and is making initial inquiries.”

Didn't take long, and now the HSE have got their foot in the door?

Entirely unconvinced that this is a subject worthy of discussion until all the facts are known...
