A woman in Maidenhead, Berkshire, United Kingdom, has been paralyzed after she got “catapulted” off a bed during sex.
Claire Busby, 46, is suing the bed company after she says the defective bed sent her flying while her and her partner had sex. The bed company, Berkshire Bed Company, are contesting the claim, saying that the bed was properly assembled at time of delivery.
In court, Busby says that when she swung her legs around from underneath her, laying down on the bed. It was at this point that the bed reportedly collapsed, and toppled over on the end. Busby says this “catapulted” her off of the bed, landing on her head. She suffered serious spinal injuries that left her partially paralyzed for at least a week after the incident.
