Swede's bottom impaled in freak funfair mishap
The Local ^ | 20 Jul 12 | no byline

Posted on 07/30/2012 6:02:56 PM PDT by a fool in paradise

A 31-year-old father of two is in hospital struggling against blood poisoning after a freak accident at a Swedish theme park on Sunday where a tow hitch on a children’s ride penetrated his rectum.

“It was a complete shock to the whole body,” the man told local paper Arbetarbladet.

The man had been visiting Furuvik theme park near Gävle in eastern Sweden with his two young daughters aged 2 and 4. The girls were enjoying the park's minicar rides, but the 4-year-old needed some help with operating the vehicle.

“She can’t step on the gas pedal herself, so I lifted her up and jumped on the back of the truck so she would fit in front of me,” the father told the paper.

...“It was terribly painful,” said the man to the paper.

...When finally back at home, the man started to shiver and soon developed a very high temperature. After seeking medical assistance it was established that he had bacteria in his blood and was subsequently treated with penicillin against the infection and morphine for the pain.

...Erika Rydstrand, the Furuvik marketing director, told the paper that nothing like this has ever happened before despite the ride being one of the park’s oldest. She also added that it is not supposed to be for adults.

“Not even in your wildest dreams could you foresee an accident such as this. He must have sat down very hard seeing as his trousers were also ripped,“ she told the paper, adding that the incident was regrettable.

According to Arbetarbladet, police are currently investigating the incident, which has been classified as causing bodily harm, and will be questioning the 31-year-old man about how the accident happened.

The tow hitch has reportedly been removed from the vehicle.

Looks like the folks who designed Sweden’s immigration laws also got around to designing kiddie rides.

A lot of my youth was spent skiing on the Mississippi. One of my ski buddies wiped out and hit a submerged tree. He got a limb up the rear and out his side. Nearly killed him and infection was a real concern. As far as I know he still has the chunk of wood hanging on his wall. Alcohol may have been involved.

Wow, surprised there isn’t some kind of safety collar around the tow hitch pin so something like that is less likely to occur. Maybe they should have a removeable second seat that goes on top of it when it isn’t towing a trailer.
