Brit tourist nearly dies after ‘severing artery plummeting down 72ft “extreme” water slide’ in Bulgaria
A BRITISH tourist nearly died after saying she severed an artery plummeting down a 72ft “extreme” water slide in Bulgaria.
Jade Graves, 29, claims she needed a transfusion after haemorrhaging blood on the 90 degree drop ride.
Jade has described feeling an intense dull pain in her lower pelvic area as she hit the pool at the bottom of the ride.
She then watched in horror as blood streamed down her legs before becoming faint and breathless and being rushed to hospital.
Ms Graves, from Hull, is now considering legal action against the Aqua Paradise Water Park in Nessebar, after spending four days in hospital.
She says she continues to suffer from trauma after going down the Space Jam slide on July 25 last year.
Ms Graves told Mirror Online: “I was meant to be having a lovely holiday with my family but the whole experience has been traumatising.
“As I hit the water, I was in a lot of pain and I lost so much blood that I had to get a transfusion.

“It was a complete nightmare and I still get deeply upset about it.
“I am still uncertain as to what happened exactly, because I followed all the rules put to me by the lifeguard.”
Ms Graves’ treatment in Bulgaria was covered by her travel insurance, but she says she had to be off work for about five weeks while recuperating in the UK.
