A girl was taken to hospital after being thrown from a rubber ring water slide at Woburn Forest Center Parcs.

16-year-old Rea Smith was thrown from the ride and suffered a head injury. Her brother Matt captured it on his GoPro as he recorded their trip down the ride.

My family and I were in Woburn Center Parcs last week catching up with the rest of my family.

We had been doing lots of activities over the various days, and a common one was going on the slides at the swimming pool.

We had gone down this specific ride many times before. I was recording on my GoPro Hero 4 because it was new and funny to see people’s reaction as we went down this ride.

My sister fell off the ride due to not holding on tight enough. She slipped backwards off the inflatable because of the impacts of the rushing water.

I would like to thank the entire team at Center Parcs for all of their help.

Fortunately her injuries weren’t too bad, and she was only left with bruises from the ordeal.


Well done to Matt for acting so quickly!
