Sapphire said, “We were just practicing, and while I was going to turn, I slipped and heard” crack, crack “, then I was in a heap on the ground.

“It hurts so much. “I think my partner thought I was exaggerating, she must have come to get me and we were trying to wait to see if the pain had subsided but then we had to call an ambulance.”

Sapphire was taken to North Durham University Hospital and, after an analysis, may have required surgery.

“For anyone considering trying it, I would say the approach with caution, and it’s not as easy as it sounds,” she said.
