â†µâ‡¥A woman rugby player is lucky to be alive after drunken yobs pushed a two-ton grass roller into her tent as she slept, fracturing her skull. â†µâ‡¥â†µ
â†µâ‡¥The 'prank' also left Emma Winch with facial injuries after she was crushed by the huge cylinder, which was rolled down a hill. â†µâ‡¥â†µâ‡¥
â†µâ‡¥'I stopped the roller with my head. My face was numb so I couldn't feel much. I have had a lucky escape.' â†µâ‡¥â†µ
â†µPolice arrested 21 members of an under-19 team at the event who had reportedly been drinking all day and night. (The fact that alcohol was involved in the incident shocks me!) All of them are out on bail. â†µâ†µ
â†µDespite a fractured skull and face injuries, she's doing reasonably well. That she's alive is a bit of a miracle. After the 5-foot-wide roller blindsided her in her tent, she had to be taken to a local hospital and eventually airlifted to a specialist. â†µâ†µ
â†µBut fear not, because Emma Winch is expected to make a full recovery. So go ahead and pull open your file cabinet and find the gigantic and expansive file of "reasons I will never, ever challenge a rugby player to a fight." Print this post and add it to the stack. â†µâ†µ
